Pre-Conference Residency with Michael David

Please join us for this unique opportunity for a two-week residency and Master Class with Artist/ Gallerist/ Educator Michael David. 

DATES: May 17 - 28 (Sunday - Thursday)
(does not include food or Conference housing)

This residency and master class will provide you a studio,  and living quarters surrounded by the beauty of Cape Cod. 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

This master class residency will be unique in that the timing ends with the 14th International Encaustic Conference offers ! The work created at the residency will also result in an exhibition that opens during the Conference Kick off on Thursday May 28 before the conference.

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. 

Focusing on your existing bodies of work and developing  an increased understanding of how critical thinking , through digital presentations, one one meetings and the shared energy of your fellow residents will deepen and help you take your studio practice to next level.
