School of Visual Arts: Artist Residency Programs

Associated Residency Program

SVA’s Artist Residencies offer artists, designers, and creative thinkers time, space, and a supportive community in which to develop ideas and focus on their artistic direction, with summer programs on campus in New York City, as well as year-round in online formats.

In addition to our time-honored studio residencies, a variety of innovative professional immersion programs provide opportunities for artists to explore new areas of social and technological practice and engage critically within their field.

A unique combination of creative and professional resources provides a rich environment for growth and opportunity in the current, vibrant art scene.

On-campus housing is available, as are opportunities to display work.
