The Ateliers Fourwinds offer, from April October, up to 4 separate residences on the premises. Residencies can be as short as two weeks and as long as you wish within these dates.
The emphasis at Fourwinds is placed on new discovery and the process, not on rules & regulations. We do not ask artists to produce final results. We stay as flexible as possible in order to allow enough freedom for expansion.
Fourwinds offers flexible studio facilities, creative dialogue, a refreshing amount of solitude, and a group that recognizes the value of their work to both established and emerging artists. We provide a place for artists to work together separately in a supportive atmosphere
Initially, the ateliers offered ongoing classes in sculpture, painting, life drawing, etching and stainglass provided by local and permanent artists and exhibitions were held at the end of the teaching season towards the end of May.
From 1997 however, Fourwinds expanded its program to become a residential art centre receiving artists from all over the world in the spring to fall months. In the summer months, workshops or master classes are sometimes available in certain specialities as bronze foundry techniques, printmaking, plaster casting, etc.
