The 2022 Ceramics Summer School Program in Barcelona is a special opportunity for potters and clay artists of all levels to immerse into an inspiring international environment, sharing workspace and ideas with artists from many different countries.
Develop personal your projects focusing on functional ceramics, conceptual installations or experimental sculpture, playing with traditional and contemporary forms. In small groups, you will give a boost to your creativity by fostering your confidence and skills along with your ceramic creations. The tutors and professional artists in the studio will help you improve as a ceramic artist, enrich your vision and take your skills to an advanced level.
By making ceramics your daily routine, you will experience life as a full-time artist. You will learn that being an artist is not just about creating, but involves other complex and interdependent jobs such as presenting, promoting, managing, communicating and more. During your stay, you will be trained in what we consider to be the binder for all these jobs to intertwine and flow: a good planning and organization.
The large studio is located in Barcelona’s creative Poblenou district, surrounded by parks, cafes, restaurants, and a 10-minute walk from the beach.
