School of Art
Chautauqua School of Art Residency program is a world-renowned, six-week residency program that has served the artistic community since 1909.
Housed on the grounds of Chautauqua Institution, a one-of-a-kind community dedicated to exploring the best in humanity, the residency-school hybrid allows emerging artists the time and space to work in their studios, access our facilities, and learn from top artists and foremost thought leaders.
Within this program’s framework, resident artists work with faculty whose primary focus is nurturing artistic growth throughout the entire summer in the form of classes and studio visits.
