Spend 12 weeks at Maine Media this summer attending workshops and Master Classes, while working one-on-one with a Mentor from our Resident Faculty.
Maine Media Workshops offers a concentrated working space, offering the artist a separation from the demands of daily life and the freedom 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.
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 2013 are available as part of a Residency program.
