Open Studio for Teens: Greenwich House Pottery

FRI, Feb 7, 2020
4–6 pm

Floor 3, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center

NYC Teens

For this special Open Studio with Greenwich House Pottery, teens are invited to learn new techniques from ceramics artists and try their hand at creating clay sculptures. They will also have the chance to experiment with the potter’s wheel and have their piece fired in a kiln. All skill levels welcome; no prior experience with ceramics necessary. 

Since its founding in 1902, Greenwich House Pottery (GHP) has served as an epicenter of community, fine arts education, and social services for Greenwich Village and beyond. Drawing inspiration from the current exhibition Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019, this Open Studio is part of GHP’s week-long residency at the Whitney.

Refreshments and art materials provided. No RSVP required—bring a friend!

Free for teens. Upon entering the Museum, pick up a ticket in the lobby.
