space/ room for artist in Zug?

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator looking for a quiet small room /space in Zug where I can lock myself away from any distraction and work on a project (illustration). I use pencil and watercolour + digital retouching so I'm not at all messy (using oil would be a different story).

Unfortunately with the price of rent in Zug and my salary I cannot afford to rent a space.

Does anyone know of a group/club supporting spaces/ studios for artists around here? I bet there are so many unused empty spaces.

Any advice/ insight would truly be appreciated. Thank you!

room for artist in Zug, can provide teaching in exchange

I'll put it out there again: I am looking for a v quiet room (small is ok) in Zug where I can lock myself away and work on my illustrations. Ideally with a good view (green/ lake ).

I cannot afford to pay an extra rent for this room but in exchange I can offer 1 hour a week of French (or English for kids) or a drawing lesson (or creative session for kids) or a private yoga lesson (am also a qualified and recognised yoga instructor).
Anyone interested?

Thanks!

Maybe this site helps: http://www.artistsinresidence.ch/

There are lots of residencies and fundings available but it takes some digging and applications have to be made up to a year in advance. Wishing you luck finding a place.

Re: space/ room for artist in Zug?

You're welcome

I don't know if there are any art schools in Zug, but it would be worth it to look into the blackboards of various art institutions to see whether they are offering any low cost WGs or artist residencies. Here is the blackboard of the ZHdK: http://blackboard.zhdk.ch/

The Kuenstlerstiftung may have some residencies: http://www.kuenstlerstiftung.ch/de/d...tiftungszweck/

and Pro Helvetia regularly offers stipends for artists in Switzerland
http://www.prohelvetia.ch/FOERDERUNG.7.0.html

Good luck on your search!
