The Advanced Student Project Network (ASPN) is a unique residency specifically designed to provide undergraduate artists in a BA or BFA ceramics program with an opportunity to explore new ideas or directions in their work within a group of like-minded, motivated peers and alongside an established artist mentor. Universities and Colleges from across the US are invited to nominate one advanced (Junior or Senior) student from their program. The student nominees are then juried by a committee comprised of RLCC staff and one invited juror, who will also attend the residency as a Visiting Artist and mentor. Of these nominees, only five students are chosen to attend the residency in May/June annually.

Our 2019 mentor will be Pattie Chalmers, artist and Associate Professor of Art at Southern Illinois University School of Art and Design, and will include Lillian Babcock (CSULB), Jon Green (University of Montana), Catherine Mills (LSU), Katie Pack (Penn State), and Derek Reynoso (UWV).
