The Marsden Artist in Residence Programme

The Artist in Residence Programme at Marsden is an invigorating initiative for the school, bringing a working artist to the school each year for a five-week or equivalent duration residency. 

The resident artist enjoys the use of a dedicated studio space in the Art and Design department, or ‘Art House’, and presents master-class style workshops and presentations for students in support of their academic studies.

"It is always fabulous to have such high calibre artists engaging with our students in the Artist in Residence Programme. The indepth conversations, skills and the excitement that they bring to the classroom is invaluable" says Head of Visual Design, Kaz Bartsch. "The girls are inspired and motivated to try new things and exhibit their work in public. They expand their thinking about Art in new directions and the possibilities of pursuing a Visual Arts based career become more of a possibility for them. It is always a very exciting time for all of us in the Art House."


We welcome all enquiries from practising artists and designers for the next academic year.
