Woodstock Byrdcliffe Artist in Residence Program


Byrdcliffe Artist Residencies offer uninterrupted time and space for creatives in all disciplines. The serene mountain community is 2.5 hours north of NYC in Woodstock NY with residencies open to individuals, teams, and couples at all stages of their career. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a community environment surrounded by natural beauty. Artists are invited to participate in optional programming such as open studios, wellness workshops, studio visits, field trips, and communal dinners, or are free to work in solitude during their entire stay.

Residents in private cabins have individual work space within the cabin. Residents living in communal housing have a private bedroom and a private external studio, with only a few exceptions for writers who may prefer a combined live/work environment. Ceramic facilities with wheels, electric and wood fire kilns are available, as well as a darkroom and looms on the premises for weaving residents. The visual art studios can accommodate a wide variety of disciplines; a private music studio with an upright Steinway piano is also available.
