Master Artists-in-Residence Program

Next Application deadline Sunday, May 13, 2018!

Atlantic Center for the Arts is now accepting applications for our Master Artists-in-Residency Program. Spend three weeks developing your work with the personal support and mentorship of internationally renowned masters in the visual arts, literature, music composition, and choreography. Participation is limited to 8 people for each Master Artist. Click here for full program details.

Located just four miles from the east coast beaches of central Florida, Atlantic Center for the Arts has provided artists from around the world with spaces to live, work, and collaborate since 1982. The pine and palmetto wooded environment contains six award-winning studios that include a resource library, writer's studio, painting studio, sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, and black box theater.

Each residency session includes three Master Artists of different disciplines. Through a formal application process administered by ACA, each Master Artist will select 8 residency participants. During the residency, artists participate in formal sessions with their group, collaborate on projects, and work independently. The relaxed atmosphere provides considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation.
