The AiR (Artist in Residence) program at Thomasville Center for the Arts Downtown brings a fresh art perspective to our region, which elevates talent and sparks creative conversations within our community.

This is a teaching residency, where resident artists receive studio space at our downtown location, and partake in a variety of teaching opportunities, encouraging collaboration, sharing, and exhibiting with local makers and regional artists. Artists will develop a new body of work during their choice of a two or four month stay at Thomasville Center for the Arts, and are given around the clock access to their studios.
