Greenwich Village is a place where individual creativity has always been celebrated. In 1905, Greenwich House created the Music School and, in 1909, the Pottery. Since their founding, these schools continue to transform education in the arts— especially music and pottery—and provide opportunities for emerging artists to perform or exhibit their work. As an important contributor to the arts in New York, Greenwich House’s commitment to educational and artistic excellence remains as strong today as it was when it offered lessons and classes to those first students over a hundred years ago. Both schools continue to thrive because they are places for students of the arts to be creative in a supportive environment, to learn and help shape their craft. Greenwich House Music and Pottery have classes and programs for anyone wishing to learn and grow, regardless of age or skill. The schools offer children’s classes, private lessons, adult group classes, ensembles, pre-professional mentoring, performances, exhibitions, cultural events and professional services, with the goal of fully serving the community.

GHMS provides conservatory-level training in a non-competitive atmosphere for students of all ages.
Our faculty has trained in many of the world’s finest institutions, and Germán Diez, who serves as chair of the piano department, has mentored generations of musicians with a level of artistic excellence unparalleled in the world of community music school education. Even though our primary focus has been music, we also provide instruction in dance and the visual arts, as well as early-childhood education programs. Countless American composers have premiered works in the Renee Weiler Concert Hall, and the recent addition of our STUDIO Apartment provides an opportunity for students to learn about the art of sound recording, working with the latest computer programs to create music for the concert hall or a media project. GHMS fosters a strong collegial atmosphere among the staff and faculty. Many of our students maintain a life-long connection with GHMS, returning again and again to continue their studies in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Our 10-month residency fosters an artist’s development by providing time and space in the center of the art world, culminating with a solo exhibition in our Jane Hartsook Gallery. The resident has access to a private studio (21’ x 7’) during the pottery’s
regular business hours, access to gas and electric firings and a $500 firing stipend. Residency runs from September 1 – July 1; application deadline is May 1.
Our internship program offers high school, college and graduate students short-term work experience in studio operations and arts administration. Applications are accepted year-round.
Birthday Parties, Private Classes and Rentals
The Pottery has classrooms for rent—or the entire building can be made available—to accom modate various needs, including movie shoots. We offer private classes for individuals and groups, whether it is a children’s birthday party, special class, or creativity workshop. Personalized classes run for two hours and include the cost of firing.
We have two handbuilding
studios, two wheel-throwing studios, 28 potters wheels, two gas kilns, four electric kilns, two slab rollers, two extruders, two clay mixers, two de-airing pug mills and a spray booth. We offer five clay bodies: white stoneware, throwing stoneware, sculpture stoneware, red earthenware and sell 25-pound bags of porcelain. We have a large selection of glazes (24 high temperature and 17 low temperature), slips and washes, and offer low, mid and high temperature firings (cone 018 luster firing, cone 06 bisque, cone 04 oxidation, cone 2 neutral, cone 6 oxidation and cone 10 reduction).
Firing charges are 5 cents per cubic inch for two firings, or 2.5 cents per cubic inch for a single fire. There is a $1 minimum charge on all pieces, including single-fired work (i.e., stacked greenware). GHP offers
