Master Artists-in-Residence Program

Next Application deadline Sunday, September 17, 2017!

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.

"The motivation for my work is to learn about the world I live in, the world that hosts and sustains me, a world called earth. For this basic project, I think of myself as a public amateur, someone who consents to start with "I don't know" and proceeds by learning things in public view, public so that we can put the process of learning itself in a space reserved for debating values, the discursive space we designate as art."
