SKOWHEGAN SUMMER PROGRAM
DEADLINE: JANUARY 5, 2023
Skowhegan seeks each year to bring together a diverse group of individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to artmaking and inquiry, creating the most stimulating and rigorous environment possible for a concentrated period of artistic creation, interaction and growth. Located on a historic 350 acre farm in rural Maine, the campus serves as a critical component of the program.
While on campus, participants are given individual studio spaces, as well as access to a sculpture studio, a fresco studio, a media lab, a library composed of over 14,000 volumes, over 350-acres of farmland, forests, and lakefront, and a rich community of artists. Alumni often report that the intensity of the Skowhegan experience has had a profound effect on their work and their lives. In order to allow others entry, no participant is allowed to return for a second summer. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Tuition is $6,000 USD. A number of scholarships are offered, including general and named fellowships, as well as matching school fellowships which are available to students who are currently enrolled in partner institutions.

The artists who come to VCCA, whether emerging or established, are selected by peer review on the basis of the important or innovative work they are doing in their respective fields. In residence, VCCA artist-Fellows are provided with an individual studio, a private bedroom and three prepared meals a day so they can focus exclusively on their work. While uninterrupted time is assured and participation in community events or public engagement is voluntary, the dynamic interaction among the 25 Fellows in residence together, as they share work, discuss process, and enjoy each other’s company, is an important component of the creative space of VCCA. With a tradition of hospitality and welcome, VCCA schedules a diverse cohort of artists across disciplines.
Whether your residency runs for a week or a month, VCCA wants your time spent in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to move your creative work forward. Between time in your studio, relaxing in the Fellows Residence, or refueling at meals, we believe you will find a supportive and dynamic experience at VCCA.
