Tuition and Housing
The cost to participate in the Watershed Fall Residency is the combined total of the $975 residency fee PLUS the housing fee. Housing fees vary based on your choice of room (see below). A $200 non-refundable deposit is due with your registration. It is applied to your total cost. Watershed will invoice you for the remaining balance on your fees, which are due in full by August 1. Artists registering after August 1 should plan to pay their fees in full upon acceptance into the program.
Fall residents are housed in Watershed's heated, contemporary cabins that include private or shared bathrooms. Housing assignments are made on a first come, first served basis.
The $200 residency deposit reserves your spot in the residency and is applied to your total residency fees.
Answers to the following questions are for planning and logistical purposes only. They will not affect your acceptance into the program.
While resident artists are primarily responsible for their meals during the residency, Watershed hosts a welcome dinner on the first night of the session and occasionally hosts other meals as well. Please let us know about any dietary restrictions you have.
We ask this question for housing purposes. Answering is optional (especially if you reserve a single room). If there is additional information that will help Watershed provide you with a roommate who is a good fit for you, please share it in the space below.
Participating artists are highly encouraged to bring a vehicle to the residency, if possible. For those without vehicles, Watershed will arrange a weekly shuttle to town for groceries, laundry, etc. Please indicate below if you plan to have a vehicle with you.
