Ceramics Classes & Creekside Memberships
Ceramics Classes & Studio Membership
Great news for ceramics enthusiasts, both new and experienced: we have a whole new schedule of ceramics classes on the calendar for this spring and fall -- plus a brand new option of becoming a member in our Creekside ceramics studio!
On Tuesdays and Thursdays from September 17-October 24, take a six-week Wheelform Ceramics class with instructor Brian Caponi covering all the basics and giving you a chance to build on skills you already have.
Then, starting in November, enroll in our month-to-month Studio Membership, where you'll gain access to the studio every Tuesday and Thursday from 10am-2pm. You will have a reserved wheel or hand building space, and a technician will be present to assist with firing and other needs. Buy your memberships as you go, one month at a time, or reserve for 3 or more months and receive 15% off.
In 2020, we will offer three specialty classes (1-2 sessions each) to start off the year, focusing on Kintsugi, Raku, and Cast Assemblages.
We hope you'll join us in the Creekside Studio in the coming months to develop your clay skills!

Open Access: Alva Rogers's Roman and Julie
Literary Fellow Alva Rogers Presents Roman and Julie
Join us on Thursday, September 26 at 7pm for a very special Open Access event: a staged reading of LAP Literary Arts Fellow Alva Rogers's play-in-progress, Roman and Julie, directed by Laura Lowry.
This new work examines the historical and cultural dynamics in an interracial relationship, through time and across lifetimes. With scenes radiating forward and horizontally through time, Roman and Julie challenges the conventions of realism by engaging the audience in one couple’s intimate world. 
Rogers’ writing uses magic realism to explore themes of American identity. She has written numerous works for the stage and her radio plays Aunt Aida's Hand and Stained were produced for National Public Radio. She and the production team will be available after the staged reading for a Q&A. 
Tickets are just $10 ($5 for students and free for Montalvo donors). We hope to see you there! 

Patter on Fabric: Sep 11 / 6pm
Wheelform Ceramics: Sep 17 - Oct 24
Open Access: Roman and Julie -- Sep 26 / 7pm
The Hit Men: Oct 3 / 7:30pm
Docent-Guided Villa Tours (select dates)
