We will not be hosting artist residents through the Winter but will begin again starting April of 2021.
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 150$ per week per solo artist, or 200$ for a couple.
