Discounts & Scholarships

Work Study

We offer the Work Study option in support of equitable community building and our mission to make ceramic arts more accessible. If you are able to take a class at full cost we ask that you do not apply so the Work Study positions are available to those who need it most. As a Work Study for one of our class sessions you are required to arrive 30 minutes before class and stay 30 minutes after class for set up and clean up. The work includes but is not limited to wiping down tables, cleaning out the sink, putting away tools, and restocking clay, towels, and aprons. During the class you are a student like everyone else, so this position does not require you to have prior experience in clay. In exchange for your time and work, you receive half off of the class! This is a great way to become familiar with the inner workings of our studio and get involved in our community. For more info, email

Applications for the 8-week July-August session will open May 31st at 3PM. The deadline to apply is June 17th at 6pm.

Adult Scholarships

We believe strongly in the value of diverse voices, backgrounds, and experiences to enrich and sustain the Artshack community. We recognize that Black & Brown artists, who have been most impacted by racism and colonialism, are critical to our creative future. These scholarships are one step along the path toward more inclusivity and equity. We reserve at least one scholarship seat in every adult class. The scholarship recipients will receive a full scholarship covering all class fees including materials and firing fees. Recipients can, and often do, receive scholarships for consecutive sessions as there is no required waiting period to reapply. These scholarships are for Black & Brown-identifying individuals only, with priority given to Black and Brown individuals that have lived in Bed Stuy for over 10 years.
