Since 1982, Atlantic Center's residency program has provided artists from all
artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during
three-week residencies. Located just four miles from the east coast beaches of
central Florida, the pine and palmetto wooded environment contains
award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting studio,
sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, black box theater, writers'
studio, and digital computer lab. Each residency session includes three master
artists of different disciplines. The master artists each personally select a
group of associates - talented, emerging artists - through an application
process administered by ACA.

During the residency, artists participate in informal sessions with their
group, collaborate on projects, and work independently on their own projects.
The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for
artistic regeneration and creation. Atlantic Center for the Arts provides
housing (private room/bath with work desk), weekday meals (provided by ACA
chef) and 24 hour access to shared studio space. Financial Aid is available to
qualified applicants.

* Atlantic Center for the Arts is pleased to announce, through the generous
support of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, all painters and sculptors accepted
into the Master Artists-in-Residence programs who demonstrate need will be
recommended to receive full financial aid to attend the residency program.
Artists from other disciplines may apply to ACA's Financial Aid program.
