Clay Underground

Ceramics interest organization

The Clay Underground is a student-led organization that focuses on community, education, and outreach. The club is ceramics-based, but we welcome students of all backgrounds who are interested in learning about clay as Ceramics is an art form that is best learned through a community-based studio. As an organization, we prioritize the need to bridge gaps between students and aim to create a safe and secure environment for art students to thrive. Being part of The Clay Underground is a great opportunity to participate and learn about clay. It opens up possibilities for students to work in clay, outside of regular class time, allowing them to explore their own conceptual pursuits. As a club, we will hope to host artist talks/demonstrations, participate in a yearly philanthropy event, and have all our efforts culminate in an annual juried student exhibition.
