I agree to grant Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts and its authorized representatives permission to record my likeness and images of my work during the time that I am in residence. I further agree that any or all of the recorded material may be used, in any form, as part of publications, videos, brochures, advertisements or other digital or printed materials used to promote Watershed.

In 2023, Watershed was forced to cancel a residency mid-session due to a majority of artists contracting Covid-19. We cannot predict what health and safety measures will be in place for 2024 residencies and Watershed reserves the right to adjust policies and protocols. We ask that you read and familiarize yourself with our most recent policies before submitting your non-refundable deposit.
