Koerner Artist in Residence Program

The Koerner Artist in Residence Program is an annual professional residency in the Fine Art Program at Queen's University.  The residency program provides students with unique access to mentorship from a celebrated artist, and gives the artist a chance to share their expertise.

For Kingston and area community members, the program offers a platform whereby contemporary art is shared and articulated.  The residency is an integrated itinerary of classroom activities, studio time, one-to-one critiques, and opportunities to build relationships with students, faculty members and community artists.

This artist residency is made possible by the generous support of the Koerner Foundation.

Audio Transcript of Koerner Artist in Residence Program, 2003-2009 Video (PDF 32kb)

I had a chance to meet up with David Urban during my final semester in painting here at Queen's. I hadn't signed up before with other visiting artists, but I wish I had now! He was so informative and had so much information for me and for my work. It was nice to have an outside pair of eyes to look at my work and critique it honestly from the point of view of a professional artist and make suggestions for what to do for pushing it farther. We talked not only about my art, but what he did during school and soon after he graduated, which helped to alleviate some of the stress of graduation.  I wish I had gotten over my intimidation regarding the visting artist sooner as it was a great learning experience!
