CREEKSIDE ARTS

Artist-Residency Program

A unique opportunity to reflect, create and explore in an inspiring setting among the Redwoods of Northern California.

Thank you to our 2022 Spring Residents!

We are so happy to have hosted Andie Aylsworth, Ashaki Jackson, Jon Fischer, Hayden Casey and Rhombie Sandoval here for our Spring Residency. They showed their work during Open Studios. 

Creekside Arts residencies provide an inspiring natural setting among the coastal redwoods of Northern California for individual as well as collaborative artistic work and expression. We welcome artists from a broad range of creative disciplines. Creekside Arts provides a unique opportunity to reflect, create and explore away from the hectic demands and constraints of daily life.
Our location in the heart of the redwoods and home of the Wiyot people provides a natural setting which guides our commitment to a healthy and sustainable environment. Our program facilitates an exchange of creative thought and expression between participants, neighborhood and the larger Northern California community with a focus on new work with a social and political consciousness.
Our three-week programs provide each artist with fully equipped private living quarters and individual separate work/studio spaces. In addition to providing a space for solitary work, our program supports and encourages a collaborative atmosphere. Evening gatherings provide an opportunity to get to know the other resident artists as well as the permanent members of the Creekside Arts community. Films, discussion and exchanges with local Northern California artists are a part of these gatherings. Our residencies conclude with a creative interaction with the larger Humboldt County community. We are dedicated to making Creekside Arts available to those who may require assistance and/or special accommodations. Read more here.

HUMBOLDT COUNTY

Why come to Humboldt to explore art? Of the 58 counties throughout California, Humboldt County boasts more artists per capita than anywhere in the state. In this community uninterested in consumerism or corporatism, nature is the teacher. Humans live around  giant redwoods, wildlife,  the ocean and the rivers.
