The Visiting and Resident Artists program at the Lawrence Arts Center offers community members a unique opportunity to study visual arts with practitioners of varied backgrounds and diverse skills. New artists are invited each year to become a part of the Lawrence community and share their professional skills with Lawrence Arts Center students and artists.
These 12-month Artist in Residence programs are designed to provide a creative and supportive environment in which artists may immerse themselves in creating new work and expanding their own understanding of their medium and other media available at the Arts Center. The residencies are a multi-faceted experience including teaching, community outreach, interaction with other artists, and studio care, and culminate in an exhibition of new work.
The resident will be provided studio space, $1,000 per month stipend and furnished housing, free dental care, free firings, and 24 hour access to all studios, including ceramics, print, metal, photography, and digital media.
Residencies are currently being offered in Ceramics and Printmaking. More information can be found below.
Application deadline is April 15th for 12-month residencies beginning August 1.
