Studio Arts Boulder is a non-profit art education organization that provides high-quality ceramics programs at the Boulder Pottery Lab and partners with other studio arts organizations for programs in other mediums. The “studio arts” are those art forms which require a substantial investment in equipment and facilities that is beyond the means of most individuals, such as ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, metal, glass, and fiber.

Studio Arts Boulder instructors will help you dive into clay -- you can try out the potter's wheel, hand-build some creations, and learn about the ceramic arts.
Flatiron Press founders, Sam Cikauskas and Renate Mairie will be on hand to show and discuss the craft of printmaking. Lithography, etching, screenprinting, linocut, wood block, letterpress, collagraph and gelatin plate-to-print examples will be on display. Come ‘talk process’ and see the many creative possibilities that emerge from the multiple mediums available to printmakers.
