The ART-14 Residency, in conjunction with the L.a. Studio community’s art outreach and programming, was founded in 2023 as a haven for artists looking for a comfortable, collaborative, and creative space to explore their art and concentrate on their projects, while our local community simultaneously benefits from the activity at L.a. Studio.
We are located in the renovated St. Mary’s School building (constructed in 1912), which features 12-foot high ceilings and large 7-foot windows, with plenty of natural daylight and spacious workspaces for various artistic disciplines. Artists have 24h access to designated studio spaces including ceramics, stained glass, woodworking, and 3D printing/laser engraving equipment, as well as tons of open studio space for painting, sculpting, writing/composing, research, recording, and whatever else our artists can dream. Residents reside in newly renovated apartments conveniently located above the studios, on the second floor. Private rooms are available with shared access to kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, and a fully equipped gym. Find more information on our website (lastudio.org)!
Residency Experience Summary
Our application is open on a rolling basis, year-round, for residencies of a minimum stay of 2 weeks. Residency and scholarship applications are reviewed systematically by our selection committee and artists are notified within 14 days. If you have not heard from us, please feel free to reach out. Our goal is to accommodate as many artists as possible as will contribute to and benefit from the creative and community-oriented spirit of our program and therefore do not have any major eligibility requirements.
That being said, we prefer applicants are ages 21+, as one of our team members makes wine and will sometimes share it with our residents. We have no restrictions on nationality and are happy to support all applicants with visa invitation letters, though unfortunately haven’t had a ton of success with our prior letters of support. Of note, due to the historic nature of our facilities, we are not ADA accessible and there are stairs to access the building.
