short and long-term residencies


The history and wild nature of the Adirondacks.  78 acres of pristine farm and woodland on the flanks of Hurricane Mountain. Breathtaking views of the Great Range from your window.  An uncommon marriage of art, food, and farming.  The stage is set. 


Although clay is at our core, the residencies are open-ended and place-based by design.  We welcome  all project proposals and encourage multi- and inter-disciplinary thinking.  Here, the term "artist-in-residence" includes scholars, writers, chefs, and agriculturalists.  Teaching Fellowships are offered for all residencies with the belief that in teaching, we truly learn.


It is an intimate program, with a maximum of ten artists-in-residence at any one time.  Participants live in one of our elegantly simple houses:  the historic Farmhouse, the timber frame Studiohouse, or the midcentury modern Hillhouse.  Each with comfortable shared living spaces and stunning views.  All residents have open access to programs, classes and lectures.  Residents come together for a few meals each week which, at Craigardan, are an art form - prepared by chefs with seasonal, organic ingredients from our farm.
