Artist in Residence (AiR)

The residency program at Casa provides an opportunity for artists from across all disciplines to pursue their practice in a supportive, concentrated, community-based atmosphere. Open to artists with diverse experience levels, backgrounds and a variety of media including those in or recently graduated from undergraduate programs. 

Workshops, installations, open houses and artist talks are part of AiR community engagement program. Informal and friendly workshops allow you to create alongside artists. Open houses and artist talks with visiting artists allow for learning new perspectives and ways of seeing.  

Follow the AiR programming within the seasonal Casa Program Guide and events calendar for upcoming events.
