If you’re creating art of any kind in the New Jersey, Eastern Penn, or New York areas, you might check into a Makehouse residency.
The Makehouse brings together a diverse community of artists, fostering an environment of generosity and non-judgement.
Emphasis on the word “environment.”
They make house like this by hosting retreats out in this Thoreauvian-style cabin complete with, and I quote:
Sleeping Accommodations (Linens Included), 22′ by 29′ Studio with Marley Flooring and Stereo System, Group Work Space, Quiet Writing Space, Upright Piano, 80 Acres of Pasture and Woodland, Hiking Trails, Lake, Pool, and Hot-Tub, Home-Cooked Meals, Beer and Wine for 21+, 24-Hr Snacks, Coffee, and Tea.
Check out their application form for the summer retreat.
