The residency operates throughout the year. During the period between September to March this region witnesses a pleasant weather. Artist can stay in the studio which has two etching presses, hotplate and aquabox, along with a guest room with attached bathroom and kitchen.
Visiting artist is expected to conduct a short workshop on any art media they like and present their work to local artists and students. At the end of their stay, a small informal exhibition of the work produced at the studio is organized by us.
Through the Chhaap residency program we connect national and international artists to stay and work at the studio for short durations.
Chhaap is a colloquial Indian name for &ldquoImpression&rdquo. Chhaap was established on a cooperative basis in 1999 with a mission to create and promote wider appreciation of original prints and print making techniques.
