Our residency programs offers artists an inspiring place to focus on their craft while being in nature and amidst other creative spirits. Each artist gets a private space, either a cabin or the spacious barn studio, and can use all of the facilities down at the musical commons house, as well explore the 67 acres. The cost is just 100$ per week per solo artist, or 150$ for a couple.
