Do you desire an opportunity to pursue your own direction and ideas? Do you need flexibility in scheduling your studio time?
The Studio Associate Program allows members of Clay on Main access to all open studio times, which are overseen by a monitor instead of an instructor. This program is limited to returning intermediate and advanced Clay on Main students; you can apply after you’ve taken at least one six-week class. This requirement ensures that you have the skills to work independently and gives us a chance to orient you to our particular studio and community. Open studio times are posted on the Classes page of the website. We do not charge a materials fee for glazing and firing, but we do require that you purchase clay from us; the $35 per 25 pound bag covers our costs. The fee to participate in the SAP is $100 a month, due on the first day of the month.
Students work independently during the sessions. No instruction or demonstrations are given, but the monitor is available to answer questions.
