Artists working in various printmaking techniques, photo-processes, book arts and digital media including video production can apply to become an Artist-in-Residence. Residency applications are accepted online three times per year. Artists who apply for a residency should be familiar with at least one of the media offered at Kala. Considerations for acceptance are conceptual creativity and technical knowledge.

Resident artists receive year-round 24-hour access to the printmaking workshop and/or media center, individual storage space, possible exposure on Kala’s website and in other exhibitions at Kala or outside exhibition spaces, and participation in a vital, international artistic community. Artists also receive a 20% discount on classes and private tutoring offered by Kala. Please note that that Kala now offers limited housing; 2 private bedrooms in a two bedroom fully furnished apartment located catty-corner to Kala’s facilities. Housing is limited and adds an additional $800 to artist residency contracts. An additional housing list is available from local community members who rent out space in their homes. In this case, artists are responsible for finding their own housing.
