Ceramics studio membership available

The Art Center of the Bluegrass is offering ceramics studio memberships since its clay classes are temporarily on hold due to COVID-19. 

If your brain is fried by too much virtual learning/working/living, spending time in the studio is a fantastic creative outlet. Connect mind and body and feel your spirit calm as you work with clay.

Studio memberships are open to intermediate to advanced students — you must have completed at least one seven-week course with us, or have equivalent experience elsewhere. The $50/month fee provides expanded access to the studio (beyond our public hours), use of the Art Center wheels and tools, storage space for your supplies and projects, and access to the kiln. 

For more information about a studio membership contact Kate Snyder at kate@artcenterky.org.
