Taos Clay Studio offers three full-time resident artist positions to emerging clay artists. For seven years Taos Clay's residency has attracted artists from around the country to gain experience in managing the day-to-day operations of a community clay studio.
All residents are offered a semi-private studio space, free firings, wholesale materials, paid teaching opportunities and the opportunity to sell their work in the gallery in exchange for 20-25 hours of work per week.
The residency at Taos Clay Studio offers artists a supportive environment to explore and develop in their personal work while gaining insight into the business of making art.
Residents must demonstrate a willingness to work with the local community, and a desire to grow in their own work. They must bring a high level of professionalism and competency to the studio that enriches the quality of our programs and facility. Residents must also demonstrate a willingness to adapt to a growing studio with ever changing needs and expectations.
Applications are accepted in the Spring of each year. Click below for information on our one and two year residency programs.
