The d’Art Center offers three different partnership options for artists; Resident Artist, Associate Artist, and Artist Vendor.

All of our artists participate in teaching classes, community outreach programming, are promoted through d'Art's digital and print media campaigns, sell work onsite and through our online store, participate in offsite d’Art  installations, and are part of a collaborative atmosphere of other professional working artists. 

**Artist volunteerism is required at d’Art Center from all of our artists. This component, as well as commission rates will be discussed during the interview process.
