What

This residency program is designed to offer you just enough structure to take your creative project to the next level.

We offer:

  • daily contemplative practice & singing —Members of the Core Team are happy to offer meditation instruction. Just mention it and we’ll arrange it.
  • optional movement practice
  • three lovingly prepared meals, made as much as possible with local, organic responsible ingredients
  • a supportive and intimate community
  • the opportunity to share your work and receive feedback from other artists
  • shared studio space
  • maximum solo time to work on your project

The retreat is set on 7 acres of land overlooking the Connecticut River. There will be plenty of outdoor spaces for moving, creating sound, or finding inspiration in nature.

We find that perhaps the greatest gift the Art Monastery has to offer is the opportunity to make art within the container of a contemplative community. We find it extremely effective to build community through the spirit of the gift. As such, everyone who comes to the Art Monastery spends one hour each day in the kitchen either helping to prepare or clean up after a meal. Rubbing elbows at the kitchen sink and while chopping vegetables from our garden give rise to some of the sweetest conversations. Thank you for participating in our heartfelt community!
