Following numerous inquiries, Aha Studio is  pleased to announce that it is now offering residencies for artists seeking time to create without outside disruptions. Imagine spending a week or two devoting your attention wholly to your art!


The studio is just under 1500 square feet and consists of a washroom, sitting area with Frame TV, storage area for supplies, work tables and easels. There is ample natural light and a two-story ceiling for plenty of room to create without restriction.

The space can accommodate artists working with a variety of materials. We have 400 amp service and a state-of-the-art ventilation system — perfect for encaustic artists! In March we will have a kiln up and running to accommodate clay sculptors.


Residency costs include a private room with bathroom (may be shared by another depending on the number of artists in attendance). There will not be more than 4 artists in residence at any one time. A light breakfast is provided (lunch and dinner are at the expense of the resident artists). We offer shared kitchen and laundry facilities. There is WiFi and Sonos throughout the premises.

The immediate towns of Blue Mountain, Thornbury and Collingwood offer endless cultural and entertainment events, all-season sport activities and a great choice of eating establishments. This beautiful location overlooks Georgian Bay Golf Course and looks north to Georgian Bay and south to the Niagara Escarpment.



One week stay:  $500.00 CAN (plus tax)  

Two week stay: $950 CAN (plus tax) 

Once approved, a 50% deposit is required to hold your spot. Final payment required within two weeks of the start of the residency. 

*In the event of a cancellation, payment can be applied to another mutually convenient date or other workshop offered, otherwise a charge of 25% will be forfeited from the funds paid.
