A mentored program of technical workshops, Master Classes, field and lab work.

Spend 12 weeks in Rockport this summer attending workshops and Master Classes, while working one-on-one with a Mentor from our Resident Faculty.  

Spending concentrated time away from the demands of everyday life provides artists and photographers an opportunity to learn, develop skills and create new portfolios. The Summer Residency program offers students the chance to design a sequence of workshops and master classes in areas of personal interest. Each 12-week residency consists of eight workshop weeks, with an additional four weeks included for one-on-one mentoring with a
member of the resident faculty at the Workshops. The first week and last week of the residency are reserved for mentored weeks.

Students may elect to concentrate their work solely in one field, or design a program that encompasses interests in a variety of areas. All Maine-based workshops offered in 2014 are available as part of a residency program.

Summer Residencies are available in the following areas:
• Digital Photography & Printmaking
• Traditional B&W Printmaking
• Alternative & Historic Processes & Printmaking
• Fine Art Photography
• Documentary & Photojournalism
• Nature, Landscape, & Travel Photography
• Commercial & Studio Photography

Students of all levels are welcome to apply. The process begins by completing an application, either online or by calling 877-577-7700 (toll free), 207-236-8581 (internationally). Students should then submit a brief statement of interest and goals for the residency, a portfolio (websites are fine), and an initial listing of workshops they wish to attend.  Upon receipt of all materials, a staff faculty member will contact the student and together they will design a residency program. The residency must be a contiguous block of time.
