Artists Residency in Saint-Raphaël, France

Country:

Eligibility:

How would living in another country inspire you? This flexible program is designed for the professional to leisure artists to live and create in France, in a fully equipped, significantly subsidized, ceramic studio. All arts are welcome.

The I.A.R.E studio located in France’s Var region, is nestled in the port town of beautiful Saint-Raphaël, and is near several other exciting places: the historic port town of Fréjus with its Roman ruins, the Côte d’Azur and a mountainous area called l’Esterel, where hikers, bikers and nature lovers thrive. Beach lovers will also be in sandy heaven, gazing at the red rocks and the intense azure skies of the Mediterranean.

With beautiful northwestern light from the wall of windows, artists are free to stretch out and explore as they create.  It’s easy to forget the practicalities we offer, like plenty of parking, nearby hardware store, organic market, supermarket, and bakeries within a 10 minute walk. The bus stop is on the corner, even though our studio is in a quiet, residential area where our students feel safe and stimulated to work at any hour.

Ceramicists Open Call for UNICA Mag Issue 2

Share

Type:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

SUPPLY UNICA is having an Open Call for Issue 2 of UNICA, a magazine that shares stories about how ceramics influence the world around us.

THEME:
CERAMICS & BAKING: THE PROCESSES
 

CONCEPT:
In our first issue, we explored how ceramics influence our lives through the theme of sharing food. Food speaks universally to us physically, symbolically, culturally, emotionally.

In UNICA Issue 2, we will explore the relationship between Ceramics & Baking by examining the parallels between the crafts. Baking and ceramics are universal and familiar practices that have been developed through history, shared cross-culturally, and utilize similar processes. By exploring the relationship between what goes into these crafts, our goal with this issue is to tell the story of 'how' before 'what'.
 

SUBMISSION:
We are looking for artists who want to share their unique approach to clay, who are inquisitive in the methods they use, who consider the materials they choose, and who make things by hand. Take us through the various stages of your work, and how you get to your final results.

A few questions we're curious about:

Where do your ideas stem from?

What materials do you choose? Why do you choose them and where do they come from?

What are your methods? How did you learn them?

Who do you make for? What is the experience that you want to create?

Participants will receive mentorship and feedback from the Ceramics Facilitator, and assist in the delivery of Visual Arts residency programs and events. Participants will also learn maintenance and safe operation of equipment, and provide assistance to the Ceramics Facilitator in support of artists in residence utilizing the ceramics facilities.

Learning opportunities will arise through workshops, demonstrations, and instruction in studio training. Individual learning objectives and goals are determined in consultation with a mentor at the beginning of the program. Ceramics is the principal focus of this program, however supplementary learning opportunities may be offered in other Visual Arts disciplines throughout the program.

Practicum participants will experience hands-on learning in support of artist projects in Visual Arts residency programs. Participants will receive mentorship to strengthen their technical and artistic knowledge, as well as communication, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills.

The regular course of study for the Ceramics Studio Practicum is 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Participants have the opportunity to spend one weekday focused onindependent study, while the other four weekdays are dedicated to supporting the Ceramics Facilitator, artists in residence, and regular departmental projects.

The program offers experience within a professional organization for those seeking careers as studio technicians or production assistants, or those in pursuit of graduate studies.
