Call for Applications: The Clay Studio, Guest Artist in Residence, Pennsylvania
The Clay Studio, Call for Applicants: Guest Artist-in-Residence
The Guest Artist in Residence program is open to any artist whose primary medium is clay.
Since 1992 the Clay Studio’s Guest Artist in Residence program has hosted artists from over thirty five countries all over the world.
The Guest Artist-in-Residence Program provides:
- a 12 x 12 ft. studio on The Clay Studio’s third floor
- an apartment across the street
- a materials and firing stipend of up to $200
- and a $500 a month living stipend.
Residencies vary from 4 to 8 weeks, but both shorter and longer residencies have occurred to accommodate an artist’s schedule or to allow for a larger project. Some technical assistance is provided, but this program is designed for artists to work independently.
Artist Requirements: Each artist is required to leave one work for the permanent collection, present an evening slide lecture for The Clay Studio community, and accompany the Claymobile outreach program and/or offer demonstrations in the Studio’s classes. These obligations usually amount to no more than four hours each week. When appropriate, workshops are offered by the artists for an additional honorarium. Artists may be requested to present slide lectures to nearby university ceramics programs (honoraria are arranged by the universities). The artist is responsible for his/her own travel to and from The Clay Studio.

About The Clay Studio: Founded in 1974 by five artists in need of workspace, The Clay Studio was envisioned as a stepping stone for students fresh out of art school, offering affordable studio space and shared equipment. Within a short time, however, Clay Studio artists consciously shifted the Studio’s mission from an inward focus to an outward educational and community focus. It was the artists’ intention to affirm the importance of the ceramic arts alongside other art forms, as well as to bring clay as an accessible, tactile medium to a broad range of people. In 1979, the Studio became a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational institution.
They are located at 137-139 North Second Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
