Call for Entries

The Parent Grant is a four-week residency for an artist with at least one dependent child under the age of 18. Artists may choose to work in any of our studio disciplines: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics.

This grant includes a $1450 childcare stipend, up to $250 for travel costs, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. Women’s Studio Workshop (WSW) can also provide technical advice and production assistance.

The $1450 childcare stipend can be used at the artist’s discretion, though a childcare plan must be submitted with the application.

If your child/children are coming with you, WSW can provide a two-bedroom apartment (with one single bed, one double, and one single pull-out couch) that has a bathroom and an open kitchen/living area. The maximum occupancy is four. Please note that, for safety reasons and to maintain a focused working environment, children cannot be in the studios where artists are working.

Deadline: January 15

It can also be interpreted as a careful thought about something or a thought occurring in consideration or meditation.  Artists are free to interpret “reflections” with either or both of these meanings.
