The program will consider established artists, emerging artists and outsider artists. We encourage applications from both individuals and collaborative teams. Chalk Hill Residency supports artists living with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges. Please inquire for special living needs, for example, attending with a care-provider. An ideal applicant is self-sufficient and motivated, comfortable in a remote natural setting and able to accomplish their proposed project. A project proposal is necessary for the time in residency and will be reviewed. Collaborative team applications are limited to 5 people and should submit one application package only (with an application form per artist, and one proposal, statement and resume for the group.) Applicants should not be currently enrolled in an academic program. Applicants will need to be prepared to take the necessary time away from work or family for their time in residency.
Number of Participants
Up to two artists at a time (unless collaborating with a group) can apply for up to two to ten weeks.

Chalk Hill Artist Residency provides artists of all media with live and work space on the Warnecke Ranch and Vineyard. During the residency, artists stay in a 3 bedroom 1920’s farm house and studio spaces are provided in repurposed barns. Although there is ample opportunity to be quietly absorbed in creative work, the residency is community oriented - the house and studios are located in the vineyards of the100-year-old family ranch. The residency supports Sonoma County arts and culture by organizing seasonal Open Studios, Outsider Artist Programs, Workshops, Lectures, and Fundraising events for local non-profits. We offer the space and time to pursue creative work on a working ranch within the context of an organization that is dedicated to supporting its local art community.
