Independent Residencies

The Art Colony provides artists with independent work space in professional studios set within the dynamic North Shore of Minnesota. An environment of creative freedom supports the process and development of new works, allowing for a combination of aesthetic inquiry, creative risk-taking, experimentation, and artistic development.

We are currently taking applications for our Independent Residency program. Studios available for independent residencies include our Ceramics Studio, Eco-friendly Printmaking Studio, Founders Hall Multi-discipline Studio, Writing Room, the new Pill Box Multi-discipline Studio, and Studio 21.

Lodging is available in the Art Colony dorm quad, which includes 2 separate, individual dorm rooms, plus a shared kitchen, bathroom, and common space. Fee is $15/night plus a one-time $50 cleaning fee.
