Here's a fun opportunity for kids to work in a real clay studio using professional pottery tools and materials to create animals. Everyone will make lots of original art and see it through the entire process, from building to glazing and firing. Kids will learn a variety of building techniques from coil, pinch, slab, and even throwing on the potter's wheel.
The Clay Studio is looking for a summer grad intern to complete a 10-week paid Fels internship that will involve updating the records for our permanent collection. We'll be photographing, researching and tagging works that have entered the collection since 2006--mainly from International Guest Artists and Clay Studio Residents.
The Clay Studio is a non-profit educational arts organization dedicated to the promotion and development of the ceramic arts and the work of new clay artists. As Philadelphia’s only arts organization dedicated exclusively to the ceramic arts, our mission is to provide diverse audiences with a unique learning environment in which to experience the ceramic arts.
The Clay Studio seeks a graduate intern to research, inventory and catalog our relatively small permanent collection of ceramic artwork for uploading onto The Clay Studio’s database and website. Responsibilities will include producing condition reports for each art object, tagging and photographing each piece, conducting research on the artist, provenance and significance of each work, and transporting research files and images into The Clay Studio’s database for publishing online. This project will help The Clay Studio develop an accurate catalog of the permanent collection and will develop an online educational tool for sharing the collection with the public.
The successful applicant will be a graduate student interested in the arts, archives, and research. A general knowledge of the field of ceramic art is preferred but not required. Strong organizational skills and intellectual curiosity are ultimately the most important factors in the success of the project. To apply, please submit a one page cover letter and resume to Garth Johnson at email@example.com with “Fels Intern Application” in the subject line. This 10-week internship is to be completed in summer 2014. The Samuel S. Fels Fund has provided a $6 000 stipend for the successful completion of the project.
