Baltimore Clayworks offers a variety of internship opportunities. Along with the great experience gained through an internship at Baltimore Clayworks, interns may enroll in one adult class free of charge through our Mt. Washington education program. Interns must receive approval from his/her supervisor and Education Coordinator before qualifying for a complimentary class. When you would like to take a class, submit a registration form to Education Coordinator with a signature of the supervisor prior to the class start date.
Long-term Internship (6-12 months)

A Studio Intern will work approximately 15-30 hours per week with Education Coordinator and Facility Manager on classroom maintenance, glaze mixing, kiln firing, and some administrative staff for various projects such as creating organizational gifts for donors, special events, exhibitions, and other studio-oriented assignments. In exchange of the service, the intern will have an access to the studio and its shared work space and storage shelves. The intern will be surrounded by resident artists and instructors on a regular basis, and it is up to him/her to connect with and learn from them during the duration of the service. (Please apply with a portfolio of your current work.)
