2 to 10 weeks
Paid by host 

The Chalk Hill Artist Residency will award three residency sponsorships of 3-5 weeks based on merit and need. This assistance provides full coverage of the residency fee. As these funds are limited to 3 residencies only, we appreciate your not applying for a sponsor if it is not essential to you. Please state on your application form if you are applying for a sponsorship. Sponsored artists must be dedicated to their requested time in residency. Sponsored artists are still responsible for their own transportation, food and materials.

Paid by artist 
  • Artists are financially responsible for their food. Grocery stores are located in Windsor and Healdsburg, both a 15 minute drive from the Residency. A seasonal garden is located by the residency and artists can crop-share in exchange for help in the garden!
  • Residents must supply their own art materials.
  • Transportation to and from the Residency is the responsibility of the artist.

The residency fee, including room, studio, and residency programming, is $400/week (57$/day).

Application guidelines
