Sitka has five private residences on campus, Petterson Studio, Morley House, Gray House, McKee House, and the New House for its annual residents. Learn more about how we use the houses in the fall, winter and spring during our residency program.
In June 2017 Sitka acquired Grass Mountain, an 80-acre property within the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area. About a mile from the existing Sitka location, Grass Mountain will operate as a programmatically integrated second site. Over time Sitka will offer workshops, residencies, and new programming at this beautiful location.
