The program provides early career, self-directed artists time, space and support to experiment and develop a new body of work in a creative supportive community environment of 160 rotating visiting workshop artists/instructors and hundreds of students. The Arrowmont Residency Program encourages early career artists who embrace community and enjoy working in a team environment to apply.

Five artists working in different media are selected annually to participate in the 11 month program which begins in mid June and continues through late May of the following year. Private studios, a monthly stipend, a furnished shared house on campus with private bedrooms and meals (during workshop sessions) are provided.
