A Carbondale Clay Center Residency is an ideal opportunity for a developing artist who is looking for a place to pursue focused work while gaining teaching experience and valuable technical skills through monthly studio tasks and personal studio practice. Residents should be enthusiastic and dedicated to their artwork, enjoy working with other people in a community studio setting and have a working knowledge of the ceramic medium. Previous experience working in a ceramic studio is strongly preferred. The program is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual and personal growth of emerging and established ceramic artists. Residencies range from one to two years. The selections are based on the quality and artistic merit of the work, and the diversity of the prospective group in terms of commitment, work, background, and stage of career development.
