Have you been down to Arts Underground? In addition to our New Deal Gallery and Apartment One exhibition venues, GVCA also houses Arts Underground, a community Ceramics Studio.
Created in 2012, Arts Underground’s well-equipped studio features 3 electric wheels, 1 kick-wheel, multiple work tables, an extruder, Ceramics Magazines and Resources, community –use tools, and clay and glazes – everything you need to pursue both functional and sculptural ceramics, in a friendly, supportive, and most of all, fun environment.
Arts Underground is open to the public during regular business hours. We offer affordable rates for clay and studio use. Our kiln, which we share in partnership with the Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, is fired once a week.
Beginning in Spring 2018, GVCA will once again be offering classes in Arts Underground, starting with a Mold-Making Workshop. We also plan on offering art networking nights and professional development workshops, with topics such as Website Development, Social Media, and Resume Writing. We are open to suggestions for classes, and welcome your input. We are also looking for volunteers, to assist in cleaning and organizing the space, and to aid instructors during workshops. For more information on Arts Underground, please contact the Program Coordinator at Melissa@livingstonarts .org
