A Place to Create...

Our Residency program is open to visual and literary artists who want a dedicated space to work and creative community support.

Rooms of various sizes can be used alone or with others for drawing, painting, sculpture, writing, jewelry, quilting, assemblage, photography…..

For Visual Artists

Each of our unique studios has room for one or more artists to store materials and make into a personal creative space in the heart of Melrose. In addition, our artists will be able to connect with the greater FYACS community through Open Studios, art shows, teaching and other opportunities.  Carve out a space for yourself while being an active part of our creative community. Learn more about the studios.

The Writers' Room

Nestled on the second floor is a quiet work space just for writers. An alternative to coffee shop writing, members of the Writers’ Room will be part of a network of writers that are committed to their projects. Learn more about the Writers’ Room.

In addition, we have plans to create a Writers’ Studio on the third floor which will have four private work spaces for writers in residence. Shared studios are open to writers as well as visual artists.
