The Resident Artist Program
UPDATE 4/26: District Clay Scales Back 2021-22 Resident Artist Program
Unfortunately, as the Center plans it's emergence from the COVID era, we have had to cut back our Resident Artist program because we are losing two of the three resident artist studios at the Center.
The remaining artist slot has been reserved for Ara Koh, who will continue as a second year resident artist at District Clay.
The reason is complicated but we need to combine four studios into a new larger wheel room once social districting measures are relaxed. This includes studios currently being used by resident artists and by private studio artists. Doing this will allow us to restore our gallery and library space which was turned into a second socially distanced wheel room during the pandemic.
The key point for us is that maintaining a second wheel room is essential to District Clay's financial success in a post COVID world.
We are hopeful that in the future new space will open up in our building that would allow us to again devote studio space to visiting artists and regret that we cannot be more accomodating at the present time.

Sharing the Knowledge
Resident Artists are expected to be collaborative in nature, to work with DCC artists, give a lecture to our students on their work and they will also have the opportunity to hold an exhibition in the DCC Gallery at the end of their session. Teaching specialized classes or creating a workshop are an option if income producing activities are of interest.
