The Village Potters Scholarship Fund
Our scholarship fund provides scholarships to individuals involved in our Teaching Center and Independent Study & Mentoring program.
Our Teaching Center offers weekly classes in wheel throwing, hand building, and sculpture. Our classes are small and intimate, offering our students a welcoming environment to explore new and creative pursuits. They also offer the more experienced potters the room to develop excellent skills, delve into new challenges with community and attentive instruction.
Our Advanced Studies Program is a non-traditional Independent Study & Mentoring program providing student potters a concentrated study in the tradition of the master artist passing down to the emerging artist. Building technical skills, learning multiple approaches to design, and building a business in the arts are integral parts of the program. It is tailored for, but is not limited to individuals who already have full and busy lives. Students work one-on-one with mentors, in groups, and receive access to a fully functioning clay studio, Masters Series workshops, on-going demonstrations, and direction in sales/marketing.
We offer scholarships to a limited number of individuals. However, with your help we can meet the demand and offer additional partial and full scholarships. By donating to our scholarship fund, you are providing individuals with the gift of discovery and pursuit of passion.
Your generosity allows for the next generation of potters and ceramic artists to pursue their dreams, passions, and goals. Your gift will make a significant difference in the lives of the next generation of potters and craft artists. Please click our donation button to donate a desired amount.
