Low Residency Work in the Elements of Painting

with Laura Summer

low residency work in the elements of painting

A series of week-long intensives in the basic lawfulness of color and composition

We will explore and exercise our capacities in the quality realm. If you are interested in painting and wonder how to take your work beyond your own expression, into the realm of conversation with the elements of two dimensions, you are welcome to apply. If you have been painting for years and long for enlivening dialogue with other painters, or if you are a beginner, but you’re fascinated and committed to this work of learning through artistic process, you are welcome to apply.

The four sessions will be held in November, February, April and July. There will be individual work to do between sessions and the studio at Free Columbia will be available for use during the year.


The tuition for the low residency course is $3,200 for the year. No one will be turned away for financial reasons, a sliding scale is available. After you are accepted you will be asked what you can contribute.

Course dates for 2018/19

Four week-long sessions: November 12-16, February 18-22, April 22-26, and July 1-5.

The low residency course will be offered again in 2019/20.
