With the goal of promoting the visual arts, the Tres Pinos Foundation has the pleasure of inviting artists throughout the world to participate in our fellowship program beginning in June 2014. Become a Tres Pinos Fellow and benefit from the important interchange of ideas taking place in the creative arts world. The Tres Pinos Foundation Fellowship will be led by one of the most prestigious figures in the Argentine art scene. Renowned artist, Juan Astica, has honored us by agreeing to share his artistic knowledge with our Fellows.
The terms of the Fellowship are as follows:
1) The Fellowship period will run from June 2 to November 28, 2014.
2) The Fellow will be provided housing during his/her stay (the costs of transportation, food, and refreshments are not included).
3) The Fellow will have access to workshops led by Juan Astica and his associates.
4) Instructors and fellows will be provided an ad hoc workspace.
5) Instructors will be present at the workshops at least once a week. Instructors may substitute for each other should the need arise.
6) On weekdays when a workshop is not scheduled, Fellows must be at their workspaces dedicating themselves to their art (holidays excepted). They must fulfill the objectives set by the instructors. Every two weeks, the Fellow must submit a written report on the progress and advances made with respect to the objectives set by the instructors. This report must be presented to the Tres Pinos Foundation directorate and be approved and signed by the instructors.
7) Fellows will have free access to exhibits, conferences, seminars, etc. hosted by institutions with which the Tres Pinos Foundation maintains relationships. Attendance at these events is mandatory. In the case of a conflict with workshop hours, these events will take priority.
