With an explorative philosophy that allows you to concentrate on your work in an innovative and focused environment, the CalArts Summer Art Residency facilitates self-directed inquiry, enabling you to shape a unique residency experience that challenges and develops your practice in new ways.
The residency is ideal for those seeking the time and resources to investigate new ideas and deepen existing inquiries into the conception, production and reception of work, providing concentrated time to develop a project with structured support, feedback and conversation. The CalArts campus offers a diversity of resources for artists providing access to production studios as well as a renowned library of special collections and rare artist books, a comprehensive film and video archive, and a variety of on-site campus facilities.
Based in Valencia, just north of Los Angeles, California Institute of the Arts has set the pace for educating professional artists since 1970.
Offering rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs through six schools&mdashArt, Critical Studies, Dance, Film/Video, Music, and Theater&mdashCalArts has championed creative excellence, critical reflection, and the development of new forms and expressions.
As successive generations of faculty and alumni have helped shape the landscape of contemporary arts, the Institute first envisioned by Walt Disney encompasses a vibrant, eclectic community with global reach, inviting experimentation, independent inquiry, and active collaboration and exchange among artists, artistic disciplines and cultural traditions.
