A Place to Create, Connect, and Be Inspired

Clay Art Center is a nationally recognized non-profit center for the advancement and practice of the ceramic arts, in Port Chester, New York. We were founded in 1957 by Katherine Choy and Henry Okamoto, and today, after over a half century of growth and expansion, we’re proud to serve the arts community with studio space and exhibition opportunities, and engage the public and foster new artists through classes for children and adults of all levels.
