This is a get-away-from-it-all artists’ residency and community in the famed Roman Campagna alongside the JSS in Civita Master Class and Workshops. This Artist Residency Program offers an incomparable incubator-like environment to the serious artist seeking a setting attuned to intense work, reflection, exploration, artistic growth, conversation, exchange and excursions – an artistic experience that can nourish a lifetime of work. The residency is for self-directed artists interested in working independently but who wish to partake and benefit from JSS in Civita’s vibrant artistic community.

NEW: those desiring a residency with periodic input and critique, a Guided Residency is now available – A Guided Residency mentor may be chosen (by appointment) from among any one of the present Master Class faculty or guest artists.

Residents are able to reserve their own studio spaces located in Civita’s historic center as well as in the newly renovated Carcerette facility. Alternatively, one can choose to work, both partially or exclusively in that easily accessible, deeply evocative and iconic landscape of Civita Castellana and the Roman Campagna – all within eye’s reach.
