Get Involved with the CAC Community

Clay Art Center was founded to be a place where art lovers and artists of all levels could come together to learn, grow, and support one another. Today, we still remain true to our founder’s vision, and have opportunities for people of all ages and skill levels. Browse the opportunities below to find your place at CAC.

Artist Residencies

Each year, we welcome a number of emerging artists to CAC for year-long residencies and fellowships. These artists are given time and space for their art, and bring inspiration and beauty to our community.

Without dedicated volunteers, CAC couldn’t exist. Volunteers help with almost every aspect of our operations--from helping in studios to providing tours to assisting with marketing and events. Whatever your skills and interests, we’re sure to have an opportunity that’s perfect for you.
