IIFA Residency

The IIFA Teaching Residency is a three-month long teaching residency in India for four Drawing Year alumni. The residency kindly supported and facilitated by International Institute of Fine Arts in Modinagar (IIFA).

The residency takes place at IIFA in Modinagar, Delhi. During the three months the resident teachers will collectively teach IIFA’s Foundation Students and Painting Students alongside IIFA teaching staff. Teaching takes place Monday – Friday each week, with the opportunity for individual artists to take time out from teaching for their own practice. Running alongside the artists teaching time, artists will have use of a studio space to focus on their own practice. As well as teaching the residency gives the group the opportunity to spend two weeks traveling ahead of the teaching time to bond and create teaching plans before arriving at IIFA. Artists are also giving the opportunity for independent travel at the end of the residency.
