We are a ceramic Artist Residency program that is formatted in a work exchange manner. Resident is provided with an apartment directly next door to the studio, RENT FREE in exchange for a certain number of hours of work per week in the studio. Artist in Residence opportunities include monthly clay outings, studio critiques, clay supplies at cost during residency, free attendance at visiting artist workshops, opportunities to participate in sales at Core Clay as well as opportunities for additional income in exchange for labor beyond the original contract hours. And a free large, designated studio space.
Core Clay is a privately owned clay studio with 40+ artists sharing space. We house a sculpting studio for a mannequin prototype sculptor and a retail space for clay supply. We host workshops with nationally known andlocal artists. Each of these areas interacts with the artists in residence.
The goal of the Artist in Residence program is to provide an opportunity in an artists community for clay artists at the beginning of their careers to get a start as full time professional artists.
