Running a successful ceramics studio is a team effort, so there are always opportunities to get involved at Yonkers Pottery. Participants contribute to the physical life cycle of the studio by dedicating time to clean and perform tasks critical to maintaining a safe and smooth-working environment for everyone’s enjoyment, as well as time to teach, monitor studio hours, help with sales, events, marketing and social media.
Internships – Experience first hand the nitty-gritty of a successful teaching community pottery studio while fulfilling your school’s internship requirements or your own personal goals.
Work Exchange – In exchange for working at the studio, you are compensated at an hourly rate to be used toward firing credits, classes or the use of our facilities, equipment and resources to further your skills and build your body of work and portfolio.
Artist Residencies – Coming Soon!

This project is open to all artists living anywhere in the U.S. Entries will be submitted digitally. See the download form below. For questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Artists may submit singularly or as a team. Artists are asked to create a depiction of their proposed street art that closely indicates how they envision their work in real space. Photoshop renderings are preferred.
Purpose of Project

• Create a ‘signature’ on-the-street work that can be replicated at multiple locations around the city.

Presented by Wendy Richmond and Susan Hodara
You are a visual artist, but you must use words to support your work—whether for a grant proposal, an exhibition catalogue, an artist statement, or a public presentation. In this two-day intensive workshop, students will interview each other (using the instructors’ guided exercises) to develop language that accurately and compellingly describes their photographic work. Students should bring three of their photographs and a notebook. Wendy Richmond is a multimedia visual artist, writer, and educator. She has had an ongoing column in Communication Arts magazine since 1984; her most recent book is titled, Art Without Compromise*. Susan Hodara is a writer/journalist/teacher who has written more than 350 articles about artists and the arts for The New York Times and other publications.
