The Light Grey Iceland Residency program takes place each summer in Iceland, as teams of creatives explore the diverse, lush, and ever-changing landscape by day and learn from one another in artist-led workshops each evening. Artists explore volcanic fields, basalt beaches, geothermal pools, smoking vents, waterfalls, and glacial lagoons. Wandering through the landscape with sketchbooks and cameras in hand, artist have a chance to draw, explore, and learn on site about the history, geology and folklore of the land. The intensive residency workshop program provides an opportunity to share their ideas on creativity, art and design theory, techniques and methods, and a wide variety of global creative themes.
