Ceramic Arts


Our ceramic arts programming offers several options for anyone looking to work with clay. The studio features 10 wheels, work space for classes, space for open studio program, semi-private studios, and two kilns. The program is run by Caitlyn Marsh (caitlynmarshceramicsstudio.com) who joined the MBACC as Ceramics Director in September 2017.

Students and Artists have the opportunity to participate in hands on classes and workshops designed to build skills and learn about working with class. All levels are welcome. 


Ceramics classes at MBACC are a great opportunity to hone your craft and learn what it takes to be a successful ceramic artist. One day a week is set aside for student open studio time to tend to works in progress during the hours of10am-3pm, and 6pm-9pm.   Early registration is recommended for all classes and workshops.

Education Policies


Full Access Artist

Artists in need of quiet, semi-private space may be best suited as a Full Access Artist for one year. Enjoy a rent based studio divided amongst two or three other ceramic artists. Get all the benefits of our Open Studio time, plus extra access. Use of the facility is granted around the clock with a key to the classroom and semi-private workspace, as well as the building front door. Semi-private spaces are furnished by the artists.

Open Studio Program

Those who require more open studio time for their creative process should consider becoming an Open Studio Artist (OSA). For the length of any given session, OSAs in the ceramics program provides individuals with their own personal shelf for projects, tools and clay. OSAs  purchase clay from the studio and have the option to recycle scrap clay on personal shelves.
