Current Partnerships Include:
Baltimore Clayworks was awarded funding through the Summer Funding Collaborative that supported over 50 youths through a stipend visual artist apprenticeship opportunity focused on social-emotional learning and portfolio building.
Baltimore Clayworks has facilitated connecting nationally renowned artists with communities to produce collaborative, permanent artworks. Baltimore Clayworks partnered with CASA of Maryland, through a grant from the Gutierrez Memorial Fund, to commission Mexican-American ceramic artist, George Rodriguez, Philadelphia, PA, to make a totemic sculpture to be displayed in front of CASA’s new headquarters. He engaged CASA community members in several hands-on workshops that involved making clay animals and painting tiles that are part of the base for the sculpture.
