We believe that the future of ceramics belongs not just to today’s emerging artists, but to students who are only just beginning to explore their artistic and scientific abilities.

Every summer, Pewabic offers a unique apprenticeship program for talented Detroit high school students. Under the supervision of a Pewabic instructor, students spend morning sessions receiving ceramic instruction and afternoons assisting staff, working in teams throughout the various areas of the pottery.

Apprentices are selected through an interview process and have the opportunity to exhibit the work they create at Pewabic in our Annual Staff & Student Exhibition.

Contact our Community and Youth Programs Supervisor for more information on these programs by emailing education@pewabic.org or calling us at (313) 626-2086.
