New York City Residency


Since June 2001, the college has rented a Manhattan studio in close proximity to the city’s primary gallery districts for use by one SCAD graduate or advanced undergraduate painting student during each of four academic quarters. Students must be registered for two classes during the residency: an internship and an independent study or other course (such as an eLearning course). Studio residents must host an Open Studio (for reference, view Jon Seals’ Winter 2012 Open Studio).


Applications from SCAD graduate and advanced undergraduate paintings students are reviewed by faculty once each year (typically in February). For more information, contact the painting department administrative assistant (912-525-6405).

Applications are received only in digital form; either as an email attachment as a CD.

A complete application is comprised of 1) the completed, signed application form (editable PDF); 2) resume , 3) current unofficial transcript and/or CAPP report, 4) project proposal, and 5) 10 to 20 JPG images that related to the project proposal.  For more information, contact the painting department administrative assistant (912-525-6405).

The dates of each quarter long residency are as follows:

Summer 2012 — June 25-Aug 30

Fall 2012 — Sept 10-Nov 19

Winter 2013 — Jan 7-Mar 14

Spring 2013 — Mar 25-May 30

The studio is located at 323 West 39th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues. The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program, a professional community of 80 artists, is based in the same building; the EFA Studio Program is separate from SCAD’s New York City Workspace Residency. The studio is served by key-access passenger and freight elevators, and provides shared restroom facilities, wash sinks, and common areas equipped with coffee maker, sink, refrigerator, and microwave oven. The studio has an 11′ ceiling, a phone line, several electric outlets, windows on one wall, and individual ventilation and air conditioning. The building is heated by steam radiators. Access to the studios is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Large or heavy items and work involving high noise levels or fire risk cannot be accommodated for practical reasons. Residency participants are strictly prohibited from living in the studio.

Residents must cover all travel expenses, tuition, room and board, as well as all associated expenses (transportation within the city, materials, health insurance, cell phone, etc.). Studio rent (several thousand dollars each term), and studio utilities (heat, air-conditioning, electricity) are covered by the college.
