Monson Arts offers 4-week residencies for artists and writers with the goal of providing time and space for creative practice. Residents receive a private studio, private bedroom in shared housing, three meals a day, and $1,000 stipend. Application for this program is open to anyone at any stage of their career, working in visual arts, writing, and related fields.

All of our studios are outfitted to accommodate a variety of practices. Artists’ studios are spacious with large work tables and sinks. Access is available to woodshop and metal shop facilities for any fabrication needs. Writers’ studios are comfortably furnished with work tables, bookshelves and reading chairs. Residents live in newly renovated historic homes in town that have shared kitchens and bathrooms and receive three meals a day in our cafe. Our entire campus has high speed wifi internet access.

Artists live and work in historic buildings in downtown Monson.
