Hanover Grange, Jamaica


The Hanover Grange, Jamaica Residency has kindly been gifted and funded by Andrew and Theresa Roberts, long-standing supporters of the Royal Drawing School.

The residency will be hosted at their Hanover Grange property, close to Montego Bay on the Island of Jamaica. The residency offers two artists two weeks drawing and painting at Hanover Grange and would suit landscape painters, as the property offers a variation of inspiring landscapes from the gardens to beach and jungle. The residency will give the artists the opportunity to meet and work with other local artists who are based in the city of Kingston. The artists will also have the chance to visit the main visual Arts School in Kingston, Edna Manley College, opening the residency up as a cultural exchange. 

Artists will be awarded a two-week residency at Hanover Grange. The artists will be provided with accommodation at the Hanover Grange property, all meals and airport transfers in Jamaica. The artists are free to paint on the grounds and on the Tryall Club grounds; visits outside of the grounds can be organised through house staff. Artists will be awarded with a £2,000 stipend to cover the cost of flights, art materials and a stipend for the artists time in Jamaica.
