*Artist-in-Residence Program

Residency programs provide hands-on learning opportunities for participants through multiple-day, artist-led projects. If you would like to book an artist for a project of three or more full days, but require financial assistance, you may be eligible to receive a financial subsidy. While these grants substantially cover the costs of MASC residencies, your school will be responsible for any remaining balance.
