Open Studio Programs

KRASL CERAMICS OPEN STUDIO PROGRAM

The Krasl Ceramics Open Studio Program provides experienced ceramicists with independent access to the KAC ceramics studio.  Members are invited to participate in a number of KAC events and programs throughout the year, including Ceramic Studio Potlucks, Raku Firings, Studio Open Houses, and the Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff.  We believe the cooperative interaction of people in the studio is a rich source of artistic development carried out in a mutually supportive environment.
