The basement of the Art Center is home to a large ceramics studio. We host regular classes for children and adults – including hand-built pottery, wheel-thrown pottery, and ceramic sculpture – and also offer a studio membership program.

Studio Membership

The Art Center of the Bluegrass welcomes up to 15 experienced potters as members of our communal Ceramics Studio.  Interested potters must complete at least two full-length (6 or 7 week) classes at the Art Center in either hand-building or wheel-throwing with one of our instructors or submit examples of work and a description of relevant experience before applying for membership.  

The monthly membership fee of $50 provides access to the Arts Center’s Ceramics Studio, use of communal tools and glazes, and access to our kiln. Firing fees are assessed based on weight of pieces. To find out more and request an application, contact Niki Kinkade – niki@artcenterky.org.
