The AMOCA Artist in Residence Program, established in 2012, is one of the few long-term fellowship opportunities for ceramic artists on the West Coast. Located an hour from the desert, mountains, and beaches of Southern California and forty minutes east of Los Angeles, the residency provides artists an opportunity to produce or develop a new body of work. Beginning in 2022, thanks to enhanced support from the Windgate Foundation, additional short term residencies are available for artists based in Southern California.

This AIR program is funded through generous support from Julianne and David Armstrong, Laguna Clay, and the Windgate Foundation.
