Artsmith’s interdisciplinary artist residency hosts artists, scholars, naturalists, and writers for one to four weeks each January at the historic Kangaroo House Bed and Breakfast on Orcas Island in Washington State’s San Juan Islands. Up to five fellows at a time stay in individual rooms with private baths and have access to the inn's amenities, including wireless Internet and our garden hot tub. There are no artist studios, so visual arts that do not require a studio, such as sketching and pleine aire are best suited for the residency. Fellows are responsible for travel and meals with the exception of welcome hors d'oeuvres the night of arrival plus four dinners each week. The residency is within walking distance of the beach, library, coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, and Darvill's Bookstore, and only a few miles from Moran State Park and Turtleback Preserve for outdoor inspiration
