We are currently accepting applications for our Studio C Artist-in-Residence program. If you would like to apply please email our Arts Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Studio C is an Artist-in-Residence program at Christ Church. Its mission to be an inviting space that challenges artists to explore new forms of creation while engaging with the neighborhood.
Studio C accommodates two artists and applications are made available when one or both spots are open.
Christ Church is a nurturing congregation and we ask that the artist in residence have the same nurturing nature. We invite people of all faith and non-faith backgrounds to apply for this unique opportunity. We are hoping for artists who are interested in being engaged with our neighborhood and our congregation on an intellectual level.
As a part of this agreement, the artist is required to work on site one Sunday monthly to be accessible to answer questions or show their work to members of
Christ Church. The artist also is required to help organize, in collaboration with the church staff, a minimum of one art show and/or other events to showcase their work and to promote Christ Church as a center for arts on The Peninsula.
While in residence the artist is expected to regularly maintain the studio. In exchange for the rent free studio space the church requires that 25% of the proceeds of any works sold by the artist on the church property go to support the ministries of Christ Church by the Sea. The church will also commission works from the artist in exchange for the free studio space. These commissioned projects will be based on the mediums of the artist.
