About Spark Box Studio

We are Chrissy Poitras and Kyle Topping and together we run Spark Box Studio - a printmaking studio and residency program in rural Ontario.

Since 2009, we have had an unwavering commitment to supporting creators and art lovers alike. We have hosted a vibrant community artist residency and printmaking studio in our rural Ontario farmhouse. We've welcomed over 400 visiting artists from around the world who have come to find time and space away from their routines to focus on a variety of arts ranging from painting and poetry, to music and film.

Knowing that one of the most difficult aspects of being an artist is time and money, we offer awarded residencies to six to emerging Canadian artists, and to one North American artist our Dawson Award, which includes a $1000 bursary.

Above all else, we view Spark Box as a resource by artists for artists. It's a place to create, research and grow. A place to learn, develop and explore. However artists, community members and visitors engage with us, our goal is to provide artists with the tools and connections to successfully share their vision with the world.
