Working Artist Program (WAP) Residency

The goal of the WAP Residency is to connect Tiger Lily with a local artist who is passionately committed to their work and their artistic community, interested in seeking out possibilities for expanding their current work into printmaking or challenging their existing love of printmaking through a focused residency project. Through their creative drive and work ethic, the artist serves as a role model for the members of Tiger Lily Press and is asked to engage with the greater community to increase awareness of and education in the field of printmaking.

The Working Artist Program Residency was established in 2012. The duration of the residency is nine months, spanning February-November. Out of town applicants should note that housing is not provided and is the responsibility of the artist.

Benefits of the WAP Residency include:
- $700 stipend
- One year free membership to Tiger Lily Press ($175 value)
- Free admission to one class or workshop at Tiger Lily Press
- The opportunity to present work at an artist talk open to the public at Tiger Lily Press during the residency
- Assistance from the WAP chair, if desired, to facilitate a final exhibition of work produced during the residency at an outside venue

In return, the WAP Resident is expected to:
- Teach a class OR offer a demonstration drawing from their experiences during the course of the residency
- Meet with the WAP chair on a regular schedule (frequency to be determined on a case-by- case basis)
- Write a short personal statement at the conclusion of the residency reflecting on the experience, to be submitted to the Tiger Lily Press Board for archival purposes
- Donate one print created during the residency to Tiger Lily Press for archival purposes
