Emerging Artist Residency (EAR) was established in 2009 by Atlanta Printmakers Studio (APS) to provide emerging artists the resources to create a body of work and an opportunity for professional development. APS’s mission is to nurture the practice of printmaking by providing the means for artists to make prints while celebrating and educating the community about the fine art of printmaking. EAR accomplishes this goal by providing artists a well-equipped studio, education, mentorship, exhibition, as well as, a unique opportunity to work with practicing artists of varied backgrounds and diverse skills.

For the purposes of this program, an emerging artist is someone who shows significant potential, yet has not achieved a corresponding amount of professional accomplishment and recognition as an artist, regardless of age or recognition in other fields.

Emerging Artist Residency is open to all emerging printmakers.

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old and not a full time student.

  • Applicants from out of town may apply, but please note that housing and transportation are not included with this program. All expenses and arrangements related to transportation, housing or other living expenses are the responsibility of the artist.
  • APS members, contracted APS instructors and volunteers are eligible to apply. APS Board of Directors and employees are not eligible to apply.
