CAS provides resources, advice, support and opportunities for professional artists post graduation and beyond. We know losing the infrastructure of support, resources, facilities, and advice can be a shock and a challenge. CAS bridges the gap between art school and life after formal education. One of the ways it does this is by offering promising new graduates from Winchester School of Art a 6 months residency at CAS, and partners them with a school.
How it works
The six-month residencies run consecutively, with CAS brokering the partnership. Through a co-creative process, starting with an initial proposal from the artist, we find out what everyone needs, then ensure they get it.
CAS recognises the individuality of each artist and giving them the space to pursue their own interests and research. We are flexible and respond to the needs of each artist which allows for a greater diversity.
Each residency is unique, as it depends on the schools timetable and curriculum needs, as well as the artists availability and skill set. Approaches to the six-month project window could range from an artist working with pupils every day for the full duration, to planning a single spectacular one-day event.

“The EPR was the best thing that happened to me after Uni. CAS feels like it will always be the people I can talk to, it’s a second home with regard to artwork. The Associates is a very unique thing that CAS have because I felt very much part of a family.” – Chloe
