Welcome to the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center’s ceramics facility! We have a sweet little studio overlooking the San Lorenzo River with diverse amenities for any clay enthusiast. Whether you are looking to get your hands into something new and take a class, attend a workshop, or just need a place to work in clay, we’ve got a variety of options available.

We feature talented artists every year who come to share their talents with us through workshops and special events. And there are always a changing variety of classes available through the year with local artists as well. We offer studio time for the experienced clay enthusiast who needs studio space.

Your safety and the safety of fellow students is important to us. Please review our ceramics facility policy HERE.

Notice to Students:

If you had pots waiting to be fired in 2020, please check in during our new studio hours to see if they’re on the shelves. You can take bisqueware home and bring it back later to glaze and fire. But we do want to clear our shelves for new work and will eventually donate old items to students for glaze practice. We hope to see you soon!

If you need to contact one of the lab technicians, please use this address: ceramics@mountainartcenter.org
