The Mendocino Art Center’s Artists in Residence (AIR) Program provides a community-based environment that facilitates educational and individual artistic growth.

The AIR program brings emerging and established artists to this unique art center in rural Northern California. It provides time and space for AIRs to develop their work in a primary field, and, if desired, expand their experience in other art disciplines and associated pursuits.

The AIR program offers opportunities in:
writing | ceramics | fiber arts/textiles | fine art
jewelry | sculpture/blacksmithing
independent residency
