FACILITATED STUDIO PRACTICE

Ceramics, Painting, Photography & New Media, Sculpture

Anderson Ranch’s Facilitated Studio Practice approach provides artists the opportunity to work on independent projects while receiving regular one-on-one mentoring and critique sessions with Anderson Ranch artistic staff. Each participant receives an assigned studio space, orientation and access to equipment, as well as five hours of weekly technical guidance in the Ranch’s state-of-the-art facilities.

This program allows local artists the experience enjoyed by national and international artists who travel to Snowmass Village from all over the world. Participants may expand their practices, take artistic risks, try new media or complete works for exhibition.

Applicants must submit project proposals or portfolios for approval. A limited number of participants will be accepted and rigorous health and safety standards, as well as social distancing requirements, must be followed.

Current session runs January 9 to 27 with flexible start dates.
