The Artist Accelerator Program is a foundations business program for fine artists, artisans, musicians, and writers. Established and emerging artists from around the region work together in a supportive and collaborative environment, gaining career-building skills that boost confidence, skills, and economic proficiency.
The Art Center’s mission is to foster creativity and engagement with the arts to inspire personal growth and community well-being. The Artist Accelerator Program (AAP) is advancing this mission through support of regional artists with career-building programming, artist residencies, and increased opportunities for artists to be visible in the community. To accomplish this, we aim for in-depth understanding of the diverse needs of local artists, building a cadre of high-quality instructors, and the formation of venues for increased community building among artists and the communities in which they work.
What does the Artist Accelerator Program offer?
Community: Support and collaboration, special events, and Artist Meetups
Curriculum: Artist Residencies, lecture series, and workshops
