Watershed’s summer sessions provide time and space for
small groups of up to 15 artists to step away from their daily routines,
immerse themselves in their work, and make new connections within the
clay community.  During a residency, artists work independently in our
large communal studio.  Most of the summer sessions are organized by
artists—who propose a theme related to clay and recruit four to eight
other artists to join them. The balance of participants in a session
(seven to ten more artists) register here on our website, drawn by a
shared interest in the session theme. Once in residence, all of the
session’s artists work side-by-side in the Watershed studios.

During a summer session, you will have unlimited time to work and
dialog in the studio alongside other artists-in-residence, along with 3
delicious meals a day, and comfortable accommodations in shared or
private housing. When reviewing session options, consider choosing a
theme that resonates with you, whether you want to delve more deeply
into that focus or follow your own path of inquiry once you are here.

Watershed residencies are filled on a first-come, first served
basis.  Simply fill out the registration form and submit your deposit.
