Throughout the year, the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia offers 1 to 12 week Residencies to professional and practicing artists. Work projects are in Printmaking, Book-Arts, Drawing & Painting, Illustration and Calligraphy.
A residency at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica provides a unique opportunity to experience Italy & Venice, not as a tourist, but as independent working artists with the Studio’s international creative community. Resident artists have access to the Scuola's studios 7 days a week. The Scuola is located in the heart of Venice and is equipped for all printmaking methods, including lithography, letterpress, serigraphy, intaglio, and photo-mechanical processes.
Being part of the local community of artists and teachers
Since 1969, our resident artists have worked side by side with Italian and international artists and have taken part in our daily activities: workshops, seminars, presentations, exhibitions, visits to collections and libraries. Resident artists are fully immersed in the local life and culture.
Living in Venice
Studio Resident Artists should find their own accommodation in Venice. There is a wide choice of short rentals in both Venice and the mainland -which is very well connected via bus and train. Artists coming to the Scuola for a residency may request to be put in touch with other artists coming in the same period to team up and share an apartment.
The Scuola also offers the unique opportunity of attending a residency in an historic Palazzo on the Grand Canal. Please follow this link➤ for information and fees.
Health and safety in the laboratories
The Scuola is a health & safety authorized independent school and studio. All safety, hygiene, and health features in our labs and studios have been inspected and approved by health authorities. Non-toxic methods are also practiced.
Qualified assistance is provided in our studios (please note: our staff and printshop manager are available for private tutorials for a fee).
