This residency and master class will provide you a studio, access to a complete printmaking shop, encaustic facility and living quarters surrounded by the beauty of Cape Cod in August. The program will be limited to only 8 participants and will be subject to a portfolio submission process.
The goal of this hybrid master class/residency will provide you the time to focus on your work away from the distractions of day-to-day routines and to participate in the shared energy of like-minded artists as you take your work to new levels and prepare for exhibition opportunities.
Michael David will work with you via Skype or phone for two hour long sessions (email as needed) prior to your arriving at the residency. This will allow Michael to gain a better understanding of you, your work and goals to maximize your experience. He will also be available on a consistent basis for dialogue about your work during the time in Truro, with the artwork produced being part of a final exhibition.
