The Artists in Residence (AIR) program provides a community-based environment that facilitates both educational and individual artistic growth at the Mendocino Art Center (MAC).

The AIR program was developed to bring emerging and established studio artists to this unique Northern California region. It provides both time and space for AIRs to develop their work. The MAC residency year runs from the third week in September to mid-May and offers opportunities in ceramics, fiber arts, fine art, jewelry sculpture/blacksmithing and writing.
