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 2021 Mentor will be Julia Galloway, artist and Professor at theĀ  School of Visual and Media Arts at the University of Montana. 2021 ASPN artists will include Wesley Barnes (SIUE), Holly Barrett (Ohio University), Anna Graef (Penn State), Julie Huang (CCA), and Janiece Maddox (U of Iowa).
