2017 Summer Residency: June 5- August 18
Application Deadline: March 1, 2017

Odyssey ClayWorks is a working studio, art school and gallery, which promote understanding, appreciation and professional development in the ceramic arts. The spirit and programs of Odyssey are based on the philosophy that every individual's creative capacity is greatly enhanced by a generous community and challenging instruction. We believe that within each individual lies the potential for creative development.

Kindness, teamwork, support, respect, and community are the five core elements of Odyssey's Programs. Our intention for the Summer Resident Artist Program is to provide progressive students with the opportunity to enrich their educational experience while working within a creatively stimulating studio environment. The program emphasizes learning through a range of inspiring classes, workshops, lectures, and hands-on experiences as well as networking with a large community of artists both at Odyssey and in the River Arts District of Asheville.

The summer residency is a 10-week commitment from June 5- August 18, 2017 with the week of July 4th off for summer break. The program suits those who are self-directed, detail oriented and community minded. Applicants must have the willingness to work hard at studio maintenance as well as working with children and assisting instructors.

Benefits include 24-hour studio access, use of community studio equipment, attending visiting artist's lectures, discounts on clay purchases, and access to electric kilns for firing artwork. Residents will also receive a weekly stipend of $125. Residents are responsible for their own housing, living expenses, material costs and firing fees.

In exchange for what the center provides, the Summer Resident is responsible for assisting Odyssey's Kids Clay Camp five hours per day, Monday through Friday. Duties include assisting instructors, working with children, firing kilns, cleaning, organizing supplies and general studio maintenance. Residents act as representatives of Odyssey ClayWorks and are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner and to execute their responsibilities thoroughly.
