Artists are invited to submit proposals to the Digital Painting Atelier. Artists are selected through a juried process. This opportunity provides an artist with one-week access to technology and technical support offered through the Digital Drawing and Painting Lab for creative experimentation and expansion of their practice. The artist will produce a new and original edition of artwork/digital prints and interact with the community of the Drawing and Painting program. The artwork produced during the residency will benefit both the visiting artist and the Drawing and Painting program. The artist maintains majority ownership through a 60/40 split of a minimum edition of 5 prints. The Faculty of Art will exhibit, auction and archive the remaining 40% of the edition. This in turn offsets the cost of running the Digital Painting Atelier and helps to raise funds for other initiatives in the Faculty of Art.

OCAD University students will have an opportunity to interact with the artist in residence as well as assist in the development of the artist’s project. The visiting artist will be expected to lecture on their work, conduct informal presentations, critiques and/or workshops with students and faculty. Moreover, the artist will be entitled to an honorarium as well as travel expenses and accommodations (when applicable) during the residency. Please see the application form for more details.

“My residency at the Digital Painting Atelier at OCAD was fantastic. It is a rare experience to be given space and time to work, as well as the equipment you need, material and financial support, and the opportunity to engage with an exciting and welcoming art school community. I came to Toronto with a project in mind, and everyone at OCAD did everything they could to make sure I was in a position to make the work and leave with a finished edition of professional prints, which I did. But I also was offered such amazing hospitality, including getting shown around Toronto's galleries, taken to the museum, and the chance to get to know some really wonderful faculty, staff, and students. And of course, it was great to give a talk about my work and to meet one-on-one with many students to give feedback about theirs. I've applied to and done many residences, and the Digital Painting Atelier is very unique — those of us working with digital painting and digital drawing should be grateful it exists.”
