Clay People Ceramics Club
Clay People is a community outreach organization that provides artists workshops, social events, charity fundraisers and ceramics sales opportunities. We also offer grants for workshop participation to high school artists/students. Clay People is especially proud of its ongoing commitment to Empty Bowls—a fundraising effort that raises money for area food banks. Clay People members receive member discounts to workshops and classes at ClaySpace. Clay People membership is available with a $40 donation.
Our internship program is designed as an extension of the educational experience for individuals seriously planning to pursue a career in the ceramic arts. Our intention is to provide a supportive, mentoring environment, enabling the Intern/Studio Assistant to develop and move on to the next level of their ceramic career, whatever that may be.
While the program is voluntary and unpaid, in exchange for their time interns get:
- 24/7 access to the facilities
- 2 free firings per month
- Clay at student pricing
- The opportunity to display and sell your work
- The opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive environment
- Qualified individuals are also eligible for a paid, part-time teaching position
ClaySpace donates time and talent to support young artists by providing workshop scholarships, internships and gallery exhibit opportunities. These programs are supported by Clay People and The Illinois Arts Council.
