Dumfries House Applications (US Applicants)

Residency Terms

The Dumfries House US residencies are only open to artists nominated by partner art schools in the United States. 

The residency is intended to be a productive and creative period for the artist to be able to work in a peaceful environment, whilst enjoying Dumfries House, its grounds and the surrounding countryside. 

Each artist is provided with a studio and self-catering accommodation. Some US partners provide financial support to help cover the cost of travel, food and materials. International artists must take responsibility for their own visas. 

Applications are currently closed for the Dumfries House US Summer residency. If you have any questions regarding the Dumfries House Residency for US artists, please contact residencies@royaldrawingschool.org
