For many years now the Monhegan Artists’ Residency Program has offered two five-week residencies during the “shoulder” seasons of May-June and September-October when rentals for studio space and lodging are less expensive. This schedule, as we have been told by many teacher-artists who would like to apply, is prohibitive for K-12 visual art teachers, who are in school during those months.

After discussing this situation for a number of years, the Board of Directors is pleased to announce the establishment a two-week residency in July open only to K-12 visual art teachers. We are very excited about this expansion of our program to include this group of artists, who are often underserved in terms of professional development opportunities to nurture their own art and creativity.

The Visual Art Teacher Residency includes a $200 stipend to help cover costs for food, transportation and supplies. The first Visual Art Teacher Residency will be in July 2013, and any K-12 visual artist teaching in a Maine school is invited to apply. Please go to our website for details
