Call for Workshop Proposals

Ox-Bow's Art on the Meadow: Spring & Summer Workshop Proposals 2022

Art on the Meadow is a grant-funded program that offers a variety of art-making experiences through short-term workshops for teens and adults on Ox-Bow’s campus. These community-driven workshops aim to provide an intergenerational, accessible space for artists to cultivate new work and ideas through experimentation and play within our rich, natural environment. Ideal workshops will engage participants of all experience levels, from novice to pro, and consider the specificities of Ox-Bow’s context.

Teaching artists from West Michigan, the greater Chicago area and beyond are encouraged to submit proposals to teach workshops at Ox-Bow during 2022. Workshop instructors receive a teaching stipend and a budget for instructional materials. Please note that there is no additional travel stipend available for Art on the Meadow instructors at this time; however, if an instructor does not live locally, Ox-Bow will provide room and board during the duration of their workshop.

Proposals for our 2022 spring and summer season are due on November 1, 2021!
