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 2022 Mentor will be Arthur Gonzalez, artist and Professor at the California College of the Arts. Participating residents include Sydney Butts, University of Florida; Joseph Godfrey, University of Montana; Laurin Koneski, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale; Mary Rhein, Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville; and Matt Ryerse, School of the Art Institute, Chicago.
