Registration fee:

The registration fee for the workshops is $10/person per workshop, to cover the cost of materials, the artists' time, and support the future of the Residency Program! However, this fee is sliding scale, so pay what you're able to. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. 


Other info:

Some snacks will be provided. In effort to keep everyone safe, we ask that you please wear a mask in the space (unless you're eating!) The Residents will not be asked to wear masks during the workshop they are leading. Families are welcome, and there is a play room for children at the CRC! The CRC is a physically accessible space. Please reach out if you need any assistance. 

Feel free to reach out to Hannah at with any questions! 


About the Barbara Grandis Residency Program: 

Spring 2024 is the first cohort of our Barbara Grandis Arts Residency at the Creative Reuse Center! The first cohort of six artists meet weekly for studio time for eight weeks and receive mentorship from professional artists in the community as well as opportunities to collaborate with each other.
The artists receive free memberships and are invited to utilize materials from the CRC for their creations. The artists are encouraged to offer public workshops related to their art-making, make at least one piece of artwork available for purchase, and/or create a how-to guide to creating a craft or artwork using CRC materials.The residency will culminate in a public exhibit in mid May.
