Thinking about applying? What's it like to be
an Enso Circle Artist-in-Residence, anyway?
"I found my art voice in this experience. Through the process I learned to stay true to myself with confidence … and that is where my best work comes from. Thank you to my resident co-hearts … your perspectives, honesty, humor and craft are cherished. Lyn & Michelle …. what hasn’t been already said to which I say AMEN! The plethora of resources, lesson and individual words of encouragement have made me a better, more confident artist. "
We hope that you will apply based on the content and reputation of the program, which is now in its sixth term. Also, you probably already realize that the Residency fee of $475 for this innovative three-month program is a great bargain. And you can see for yourself the program's tangible results in the catalogs that the Residents have produced featuring their incredibly diverse artwork and the words they use to describe their Enso journey.

But there is more to the Enso Circle Residency than low cost, lists of benefits and catalogs - there's our incredible community, separated geographically but bonded in creativity, that is the heart of the Circle.

Our private weekly Zoom meetings and our conversations on Slack bond us in ways we didn't even know we needed. This collegial closeness helps us reach our personal artistic goals in twelve weeks.
