Youth & Family Programming

Our classes provide a fun and educational environment where children can explore their creative interests in ceramics, focusing on self-expression through handbuilding techniques. Classes for older children can include time on the wheel.

Youth Classes

Current youth classes for ages 5 and up!

COVID-19 Precautions are currently in place for all CSoM Classes:

All classes are limited to 8 total students.

Mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing is required inside The Clay Studio of Missoula.  Our classroom has been updated to accommodate social distancing and strict sanitization procedures.  We ask that all students come prepared to adhere to our health and safety protocols.

All summer camp and kids class participants must have a completed waiver submitted by the first class. Thank you!

Financial Aid Scholarships currently are available for our Youth Programs.

Please contact our Outreach Coordinator Jazmine Raymond for more information and the scholarship application.

The Clay Studio of Missoula's youth scholarship program is a need-based program that allows young people access to Clay Studio of Missoula classes and camps free of charge.  This program also accommodates collaborations with local organizations working with children with less access to arts education opportunities.  This program relies upon ongoing community donations to maintain funds to accommodate scholarship requests.  The Clay Studio is happy to report that there has been an upsurge in the use of this program, and we want to ensure we never turn someone away due to hardship.

Refunds/Cancelations for Youth & Family Programs

Thank you for your interest in our programs! Occasionally people sign up for classes and unexpected situations may arise where taking a class may not work in their schedules. We do have a fair policy in place for cancelations. Please familiarize yourself with our policies before registering in case you do need to make a request to cancel.


If a student chooses to cancel up to 72 hours prior to the first class meeting, a non-refundable deposit will be withheld (see chart below for refund fees).

Refund fees for cancellations made any reason 72 HOURS prior to the first class meeting:
For an all day summer kids camp: $50
For a youth class/half day camps: $25

Family workshops: Credit issued by gift certificate towards future class or purchase

If you opt to receive credit towards a future class instead of a refund, you will receive the full amount back in a Gift Certificate toward a future class, minus a $10 processing fee.

No refunds or credits are available for cancelations made less than 72 hours prior to the first class meeting.
