-Yale University School of Art Residency-
In 2019 we began our Yale/Lafayette College Residency Program, a partnership with the Yale School of Art where a graduating MFA student resides, teaches and makes art at Lafayette college for one semester. This is an invaluable experience for the students of Lafayette College who engage with a recent graduate from the top art school in the country, and for the visiting artist who is provided with a studio, apartment, stipend and teaching experience.
In the fall of 2019 we began a partnership with Lee Services, an agency in Phillipsburg, NJ, that provides meaningful experiences to adults with disabilities. Once a week for half an hour participants from Lee Services visit EPI and work with students on print projects, assist with artist projects and facilitate papermaking for Pard Paper.
Pard Paper is a student run club at Lafayette College which meets weekly at EPI. Using our papermaking facilities we recycle the Lafayette Colleges paper waste turning it into numerous paper goods. On-site meetings have been postponed until fall 2021.
In 2019 we began a partnership with ARCAthens a residency program in Athens, Greece. This program brings one artist, upon completion of their residency at ARCAthens, to Lafayette College for a one-week all expenses paid residency. This offers the artist the opportunity to continue the work they began in Athens, through working on a printmaking project at EPI. Working at EPI they share their work and their experiences in Athens with the students of Lafayette College. They receive a stipend, they lecture on their work and visit with art majors.
