Port Moody Arts Centre is Seeking a Ceramics Artist in Residence


The Port Moody Arts Centre Society supports artistic excellence and innovation. This residency is open to all emerging ceramic artists over 19 years of age. The residency will require an emphasis on making, learning and sharing the process of creating with clay.

The residency is an excellent opportunity for artistic development within an innovative and supportive ceramic community. The clay studios at the Arts Centre are busy, supportive and house a true sense of community. There are classes for adults in hand building and wheel throwing, children’s classes that range from after school clay to spring & summer camps, plus a very active Open Studio group of ceramic devotees.

The resident artist will be available for public outreach activities such as Open Studio (Tuesdays 10am – 1pm), informal talks, studio tours for student groups, demos and exhibition installation.

There will be opportunity to instruct, engage with the public and to display your work. There will be no exchange of funds involved with the residency, however, the CAIR may sell their work during the year-end exhibition and Winter Treasures show. If the CAIR teaches classes where there is a class fee, they will collect a wage for their time teaching.
