The Artist in Residence (AIR) program is a one- to three-year appointment allowing emerging professional artists to work in the environment of the Craft Center. Each studio (clay, fibers, glass, metals and wood) has a resident artist with a BFA, MFA or professional equivalent. There is also a residency position for the exhibitions program. The AIR program has a competitive application process to fill these six positions. The Artists in Residence come from all over the country and abroad to live and work at the Craft Center.
