The Clay Studio Is now accepting applications for The Resident Artist Program.
The Clay Studio Resident Artist Program offers individuals the opportunity to further develop their work, to establish professional contacts and standards, and to work within a community of like-minded individuals in an urban environment for up to five years. One of the longest ceramic residencies in the world, The Clay Studio Residency allows artists to become successful members of The Clay Studio community, and the Philadelphia art community, while making national and international connections as well.
Currently the rent for residents is $125 due to grants received from the Windgate Foundation and the NEA. Should either of these grants not be renewed, rent will be raised but will not exceed $175.00 per month beginning January 1st 2016. Should grants not be renewed in January 2017, the rent will return to $250, the standard Clay Studio subsidized rate.
The studio rentals are on a year-to-year basis. A $250.00 refundable security deposit and a yearly Clay Studio membership fee of $60.00 are also required upon entry into the program. Resident Artists also pay for the materials they use and firings (based on individual usage). Residents share common housekeeping work and contribute time to The Clay Studio as well.
