Resident Artist Program
The Clay Studio Is now accepting applications for The Resident Artist Program.
The Resident Artist Program offers individuals the opportunity to further develop their work, to establish professional contacts and standards, and to work within a community of like-minded individuals in an urban environment. Once chosen as a resident artist, one is entitled to retain their residency for up to five years.
A residency at The Clay Studio includes:
- Personal studio space (approximately 185-195 sq. ft.)
- Use of four electric and two gas kilns (specs available upon request)
- A glaze mixing area
- Teaching opportunities
- Exhibition opportunities
Studio spaces for each Resident Artist are $175.00 per month. A $250.00 refundable security deposit and a yearly Clay Studio membership fee of $60.00 are also required upon entry into the program. Resident Artists also pay for the materials they use and firings (based on individual usage). Residents share common housekeeping work and contribute time to The Clay Studio as well.
Apply through Slide Room. Application Deadline Tuesday, April 15th.

The current body of Resident Artists, the Curator of Artistic Programs and one invited guest review and rank applicants. The Curator of Artistic Programs will then select the new residents based on ranking and the current body of Residents. Applicants may be asked to complete an interview before a position will be offered. The Clay Studio reserves the right to invite new residents that did not apply through this formal application process. Spaces in the program are made available as current residents reach their 5-year term limit or leave the program before 5 years are up. The number of spots available is not known until the time of application review. All interested individuals are strongly encouraged to visit The Clay Studio prior to applying.
