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 2020 mentor will be Peter Beasecker, artist and Associate Professor of Art at the College of Visual and Performing Arts, Syracuse University, and the residency will include Carlie Jo Antes (University of Nebraska Lincoln), Grace Groves (University of Colorado Boulder), Ashton Keen (University of Mississippi), Jenna Schmidt (Ohio University Athens), and Luke Turner (Kansas City Art Institute).
