Artists given studio experience opportunity in Worcester

July 28, 2013 by  

A newly set-up program called the ‘One Day Artist Residency’ is providing people with the chance to draw inspiration from the Worchester Art Museum’s collection of fine art and recreate a version of their own using the museum’s studio.

This is a unique chance for art fans to experience working in a studio and to have their work promoted, and perhaps even taken to a local print company for full color poster printing afterwards.

The museum encourages visitors to photograph, draw, and sketch in the galleries and to take pictures of the work they complete. Artists are required to follow the galleries regulations and rules, which include no wet media in the galleries and camera flashes are not allowed. Completed artwork will have pictures taken that will be posted on the Worcester Art Museum website along with a description of the work, a brief bio about the artist, and the title of the piece. Pictures and descriptions will also be promoted on Flickr, Twitter, and Facebook, although the museum reserves the right to refuse artwork it deems unsuitable for any reason.

This is a free one-day artist residency, but registration is a must. The programme is available now and will run until the end of August at the Worcester Art Museum located at 55 Salisbury Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. To learn more about this program and its features, or to register a place, visit the Worcester Art Museum’s website or call it during regular hours.
