Greenwich House Pottery is a school that supports artists and their projects with a commitment to teaching and promoting ceramics. Starting with clay modeling classes in the earliest days of Greenwich House as part of its Handicraft School, the Pottery flourished with the help of the community and philanthropic support from patrons like Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Through war and peace and a century of growth and change, GHP remains a stalwart of innovation and art. Today, the Pottery is an internationally recognized center for ceramics offering a diverse program of classes; solo, group and juried exhibitions; artist-inresidence programs; lecture series; masters workshops; and programs for the community, all of which serve newcomers, amateurs and professional artists alike. GHP has something for everyone, serving hundreds of students and thousands of visitors each year. Please join us to experience the uniqueness of our facility, community and the ceramic arts.

After-School classes are designed for students in grades K-8. While most classes are arts-based, no prior experience is necessary, only a desire to learn.
Throughout camp, depending on the weather, campers also take field trips to movie theaters, museums, galleries, parks and neighborhood attractions, including a weekly pool trip. Register for Summer Arts Camp at greenwichhouse.org/afterschool.
Camp Dates: July 3 – August 25, 2016
Our oldest group of campers (13 and 14 year-olds who are in or will be entering high school) have the opportunity to work more independently from the younger campers. Teens work on in-depth art projects, participate in counselor training workshops and begin to learn how to supervise young campers. We aim to encourage maturity and independence in our oldest campers and provide an environment for growth and self-discovery.
