Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Non-academic study
De Ateliers is an independent artists' institute which is run by visual artists. It focuses on the artistic development of young, talented artists from within the Netherlands and abroad.
The monumental building in the center of Amsterdam offers twenty-three spacious studios. These are placed at the disposal of beginning artists who wish to combine intensive self-motivation with critical guidance. Though similar to a post-academic teaching facility, de Ateliers is not an educational institution. Its policy as a foundation is determined by the supervising artists.
The working year at de Ateliers runs from September 1 through May 31. A student may also use his or her studio during the summer months, though there are no studio visits from teachers in June, July and August.
De Ateliers, formerly known as Ateliers '63, was established in Haarlem in 1963 by several visual artists. Dissatisfied with the mass-oriented and formal art education of that time, the initiators aimed to create a structure that would meet the need for beginning artists to have direct contacts with colleagues in a professional working environment.
Under former teaching artists such as Edgar Fernhout, Jan Dibbets, Stanley Brouwn and Carel Visser, de Ateliers has developed into a highly reputed institution where approximately twenty students work, each in a private studio, for a maximum of two years. The permanent staff of teachers makes individual studio visits each Tuesday. Through ongoing discussions about art and artistry, students are challenged to reflect on their own standpoints and make choices that can be crucial to the further development for their work. Since 1993, de Ateliers has been housed in Amsterdam.
Every working year begins with a study tour for all students and teachers. Part of the travel program concentrates on lesser-known sites which are special from an artistic point of view. The study tour includes museums, art institutions, exhibitions, monuments, these involving both ancient and modern art. The trip is also a good opportunity for making acquaintances. De Ateliers covers the cost of travel and lodging.
De Ateliers is open to young artists who are at the beginning of their artistic development. Although de Ateliers does not impose a strict age limit, there is a preference for candidates up to (and including) twenty-seven years of age. They should have a good command of the English language. A completed course of training and professional experience are not required; applications are considered on the basis of visual qualities.
Those interested may apply by submitting a selection of work which provides a good indication of what has been done over the past two years. Should the nature of the work require so, documentation in the form of roughly twenty slides, photographs or videotapes will be accepted.
Please, find more + application form on the website!
It is possible to apply any time one wishes. Those interested in applying may call throughout the year to set a time for bringing in work. During the working year, from September through May, submitted work is evaluated on a weekly basis. Work submitted during the months of June, July and August is evaluated in August. The time of application has no influence on one's chances of being selected. There is no application fee.
The Department of Culture of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences offers a stipend to all students, both Dutch and foreign. De Ateliers organizes the request and grants the yearly allowance in two installments. The stipend covers basic living costs. A period of study at de Ateliers involves no registration or tuition fees.

Artist's residential scholarship at the Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede
Scholarship of three, six, nine or eleven months for young artists...
Since 1979 the Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede has been seeking to promote young artists who explore innovative positions in the field of contemporary art. Today artists, whose work addresses complex aesthetic, cultural or political issues, rarely find the necessary support to realize their ambitious projects. This is why the Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede wishes to offer these artists the opportunity to develop their work in the course of a residential scholarship of three, six, nine or eleven month. The Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede offers ideal working conditions.
The historic remise of the castle of Bleckede has been restored and transformed into three studios, each of which provides an extensive work space and a comfortable living area. The castle is located in the nature reserve Elbufer Drawehn close to the river Elbe. The placid environment guarantees an atmosphere of undisturbed concentration. The scholarship includes a monthly grant of two thousand German marks (1022 Euro), which is made available for up to three scholarship holders at any one time, by the state of Lower Saxony.
The city of Lüneburg is not far away. Here the innovative programme of exhibitions and events staged by the Kunstraum of the University of Lüneburg and the halle_für_kunst Lüneburg e.V. allows the participation in the contemporary art world. If required, the facilities of the cultural studies-course at the University of Lüneburg might be used.
Moreover Hamburg and Berlin is within easy reach, both of which have a thriving cultural life. The residential scholarship of the Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede is associated with the international exchange program Pépinieres Européenes pour Jeunes Artistes. Previous scholarship winners have included reknown artists like Katharina Sieverding, Lili Fischer, Mariella Mosler and Rupprecht Matthies, Hans-Christian Dany, Nana Petzet and Maki Tamura. The Künstlerstätte Schloss Bleckede is supported by the district of Lüneburg and the state of Lower Saxony. The residential scholarship will be awarded on recommendation of a jury of art professionals.
