Professional Development: MacDowell Colony Residency

Always on the lookout for professional development opportunities, I discovered this artist residency called the MacDowell Colony  located in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire, Peterborough to be exact.

The MacDowell Colony is the nation's first artist residency program established in 1907, with fellows the likes of James Baldwin, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Alice Walker, and Thornton Wilder to name just a few.  The Colony provides fellowships for over 250 creative artists each year.  This community of artists working in a variety of disciplines (literary and visual), and aside from the lunch picnic basket lunch deliveries at your studio, one receives uninterrupted time dedicated to their art, plus private studios, living accommodations, and meals for up to a two month period.

Check out this video  for a visual description of their artist residency at MacDowell Colony.  The website provides all the details.
