ABOUT THE ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

CURRICULUM:

Over the course of 9 months, eight artists and designers delve into a full curriculum underscored by continuous critical dialogue.  Ongoing conversations allow artists to foster greater consciousness within their practices and center their work.  Residents study weaving, knitting, and surface design, along with textile history, modern craft theory, and professional development.  Through balanced examination of historical and topical practices, our residents develop contemporary works with a solid appreciation for our common artistic heritage. Structured weekly seminars are moderated by some of today’s leading business and textile innovators. At AIR, students are able to advance and elevate their work, actively pursue their career ambitions, and share their knowledge outside of the studio walls.
