Taft Nicholson Painting Residency

Painting Residency at the Taft-Nicholson Center

July 8 - 18, 2020

ART 4180 Painting Special Topics Residency at the Taft-Nicholson Center will incorporate intellectual growth and experimental painting techniques to develop unexpected ways of interacting with the rugged landscape of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

This residency experience in Montana is ideal for artists to learn, share thoughts on creativity, solve problems, and experience multiple remote natural environments in an effort to expand their visual dialogue. Through engagement in traditional and alternative painting and drawing processes, interdisciplinary environmental literacy study, and seclusion from the distractions of everyday life, students may discover unanticipated art making topics and approaches that could impact their future studio practices.

Students will be provided rustic modern dormitory style housing, receive three meals a day, and transportation to the residency fellowship. Students are responsible for three hours of tuition.

Residency Class: July 8 - 9, 9:30am - 3:00pm in ART 353
Taft Nicholson Environmental Humanities Center: July 10 - 18
