The AiR (Artist in Residence) program at Thomasville Center for the Arts offers a fresh art perspective to our region, elevating emerging and experienced talent, while sparking creative conversations within our community.

This teaching artist residency, where resident artists receive studio space in return for teaching opportunities, encourages experimental creativity, collaboration, and shared dialogue with local makers and regional artists. Artists in Residence will develop a new body of work during their choice of a 3-month, 6-month, or one-year residency, and are given around the clock access to their studios.  For more information, contact dtaylor@thomasvillearts.org.
