About Us

The Clay Studio of Missoula is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, education and provision of resources in the ceramic arts.

Our Mission & History

The Clay Studio of Missoula’s goal is to provide the general public with affordable access to high-quality ceramic art instruction. We strive to fulfill this goal by: 1) offering a wide array of ceramics classes and workshops to adults and children of all levels of skill; 2) providing local ceramicists with inexpensive access to studio space and professional quality equipment; 3) hosting resident artists from across the country who are able to share their ideas, experiences, and techniques with our students; and 4) holding exhibitions of contemporary ceramic works and representing an array of regional ceramic artists in our gallery.

 

Founded in 1998 by former University of Montana students, the Clay Studio of Missoula was established to fill a void in Missoula’s growing community—the need for a comprehensive ceramic center where community classes could be held and where serious but less established ceramicists could access studio space and professional quality equipment at a reasonable cost. On March 1, 1999, the Clay Studio of Missoula was incorporated as a Montana non-profit corporation and a 501(C)(3) charitable entity recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.
