The Artist R&R Work Trade Program offers artists a one week free residency at AOS R&R in exchange for approximately 15 hours of volunteer work on site. Work responsibilities focus on managing rental spaces at AOS R&R, which includes making beds, laundry, cleaning, greeting guests and helping out with any additional site projects (construction, painting, gardening, landscaping, trail work). Artists are expected to work part of the day on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday focused on rental activities at AOS R&R. There are also additional site projects happening every week that artists are encouraged to help out with. In exchange for volunteer work, artists receive free accommodations in the art studio loft with unlimited studio use. Artists are not provided a food or travel stipend, they are responsible for preparing meals and making travel arrangements. Sign ups for the Artist R&R Program are offered beginning in the spring. All artists are welcome, all disciplines of art accepted.
