Baltimore Clayworks is one of several institutions regionally that offers educational programs in ceramics. What makes Clayworks different? Baltimore Clayworks strives to provide the best value through excellence in instruction, classroom accessibility, artist accessibility and attention to the individual. We create program diversity while maintaining an inclusive, welcoming atmosphere for both students and instructors. The teaching of ceramic sculpture and pottery by an outstanding group of emerging and nationally recognized working artists and educator’s who are seriously engaged in producing their own artwork is central to the excellence of instruction offered in our classroom studios.

Education at Clayworks also takes place informally in open studio time, in artistic dialogue among artists and students, in the inclusion of interns, and in access to the works of both resident and nationally known artists in the gallery. Hands-on class offerings, short workshops, slide lectures and gallery talks enrich the formal educational program. Our studio building houses three fully equipped large classrooms and is also ADA compliant, allowing us to offer a full range of courses throughout the facility.
