The Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) is offering a Studio Practice Residency for non-student, working artists to develop, refine, or challenge their artistic practice in dialogue with a chosen mentor. This residency will be a studio intensive mentorship program held at the AICAD facility in DUMBO, Brooklyn from January 6 through May 6, 2016.
Visual artist and critic William Powhida will lead the Studio Practice Residency. Accepted participants will work with mentors to be determined. Past mentors have included: Paddy Johnson (ArtFCity), Ben Davis (Artnet), Letha Wilson, Christopher K. Ho, Carolyn Salas, Jules de Balincourt, and Adam Parker Smith, among others.
The AICAD Studio Practice Residency is a non-credit, fee-based program.
