We open our space for students to work on their own creations in the River Tree Arts’ space with guidance from one of our teachers. We have open studio time for ceramics, Fridays, 5:00PM-7:30PM, as well as for sewing, every other Monday from 10:00AM-12PM.



During Open Studio, we welcome those with previous ceramic experience to share our space, equipment, and materials to create with clay. Open Studio is recommended for those who are familiar with the ceramic process, don’t need hands-on instruction, and feel confident working independently. Open studio time is reserved for adults who have taken a ceramics class at River Tree Arts within the past 5 years and are currently members. Want to renew your membership? Just click here!

Before registering for time in the studio, please keep these points in mind:

    • $20 per person for a 2.5-hour session
    • $40 for 25lb of clay (clay can be purchased here, not included in studio fee)
    • You must sign in and sign out in studio room
    • Please ensure tools and equipment returned to proper place and the room left clean
    • You might not want to dress in your best attire; art can be messy!
