Bio:

The Clay Studio is rooted in the belief that all people deserve access to arts learning opportunities, and assumes a strong responsibility to reach all segments of its local community. Our professional teaching artists bring to the partnering sites a “pop-up” ceramics studio that uses the accessible and tactile medium of clay to foster the practice of imagination, critical thinking, persistence, and to serve as a catalyst for community engagement.
