Summer PositionEach summer three artists volunteer at Cow House Studios during our teen programme: Art on the Farm. These positions provide a fantastic opportunity to travel to Ireland, live on a working family farm, work with young people, and make work in a unique environment.
Artists working in any visual art medium may apply, ie: drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation. One position requires a strong knowledge of darkroom photography.
It is crucial that our visiting artists are practicing artists. Candidates must be at least 21 years old, hardworking, resourceful, have a collaborative work ethic, and most importantly be eager to work with teens. Students studying at a college or university may apply. Visiting artists must commit to being in Ireland for all three sessions of Art on the Farm, ten weeks total.
Responsibilities include teaching and mentoring, assisting with and leading activities, and helping with the day to day running of the programme.
These positions are unpaid, however all expenses, including room, board and travel are covered for the duration of the programme. Visiting artists also have the opportunity to make their own work. You can have a look at previous visiting artists here.
