Ceramics Open Studio 30-day Membership


This pass gives students access to the Ceramics Studio for Open Studio members. Open studio members should have previously taken a class at the ArtsCenter, or should have prior ceramics experience elsewhere. If you have not been a student with the ArtsCenter before, our Studio Coordinator may request a brief interview with you before using our Open Studio.

Note: Any students currently enrolled in ceramics classes at The ArtsCenter get unlimited Open Studio access for the duration of their class + a 2-week grace period after the class ends.

Please reach out to the Ceramics Studio Coordinator, Taryn Revoir, with any questions: trevoir@artscenterlive.org
