RESIDENCY (5/28 – 6/9)

Super excited to be able to attend Haystack’s Open Studio Residency this May!
The residency provides two weeks of studio time and an opportunity to work alongside other emerging and established artists and makers. The program accommodates approximately 50 participants—from the craft field and other creative disciplines—who have uninterrupted time to work in six studios (ceramics, fiber, graphics, iron, metals, and wood) to develop ideas and experiment in various media. Participants can choose to work in one particular studio or move among them depending on the nature of their work. All of the studios are staffed by technicians who can assist with projects.

The Open Studio Residency fosters a dynamic exchange of ideas among peers. The school’s fab lab will also be open, providing an opportunity for experimentation with digital fabrication as a way for residents to augment and complement their creative practices. In addition to open studios, there will be time for participants to share work and discuss ideas across disciplines.

The residency program is supported by Haystack’s Windgate Foundation Endowment for Programs..

ART CAMPS (6/27-30; 7/25-28)

Tuesday-Friday, June 27-30
9 am-4 pm each day
Teaching Artist: Mandy Messina

Get lost in the immersive work of Kehinde Wiley’s work as you design and carve into linoleum, then print your own repeating pattern. We will also embroider various portraits using needle and thread. This process-driven art camp will also result in a surprising final project!

In addition to art-making and exploring the galleries, campers will have the opportunity to participate in a staff-guided tour, get the wiggles out in a fun karate session, and make a trip to the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge!

Once, a regular old art camp magically transformed into an ART-QUEST of mythic proportions! It happened after the accidental merging of two pop-cultural references, (the artist, Dale Chihuly and the cartoon, Steven Universe) – resulting in something more like a week-long LARP (Live Action Role Play) than a regular art camp! We have an exciting quest for art-makers aged 6-8, that simultaneously celebrates each campers’ unique traits and abilities, and the importance of collaboration!

In addition to art-making and exploring the galleries, campers will have the opportunity to participate in a staff-guided tour, get the wiggles out in a fun yoga session, and make a trip to the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge!
