Studio Access

“I love helping other ceramic artists perfect their craft. Ceramics has such a wide range of possibilites and takes patience and tenacity. Together we are creating beauty that enhances the lives of others, in turn enhancing our own lives by using our inner talents of creative expression.”

New Student Artists: You must take 1-3 months of instruction before Studio Access. Some exceptions may be made based on skill level and understanding of ceramic studio operations.

Qualifying Artists may use Studio Access during scheduled times.

Studio Access will be monitored by a Studio Monitor (Kiln Room Resident Artists) who are there to support students and make sure things go in the right place (Ex: getting clay and explaining studio processes like shelving, firing & glazing).

Artists must supply their own tools, brushes, specialty glazes (pint jars acceptable).

Parking: Free of charge, and available inside the courtyard or in the parking lot of 2050 S High St. The gate into the courtyard will be open from the start to end of Studio Access time.

Once you have Studo Access, be sure to have the phone number of your Studio Monitor saved in your phone in case there are any issues getting in.
