The opportunity to spend a dedicated, uninterrupted span of time working on a project or simply exploring an idea is invaluable to an artist and it is important to make the best use of your time and intentions.

Literary and visual artist Carletta Carrington Wilson shares lessons learned and insights gained from three residences that proved instrumental in her development as an artist. She will discuss ways of making the best use of your time and talents such as identifying residences that will further your practice and/or skills, preparation for the residency, documenting your progress and assessing the experience.

In May 2011, Wilson was artist-in-residence at the James W. Washington Jr. home and studio. Her book, "Poem of Stone and Bone: The Iconography of James W. Washington Jr. in Fourteen Stanzas and Thirty-One Days" chronicles the work accomplished during her residency.
