As a cultural arts center and social service agency, we are in a unique position to offer the individuals we serve an opportunity to explore creative employment options not typically available in our community. We do this through an arts focused supported employment program.Shop Now
Lindsay is a native Floridian who graduated from the Creative Clay Transition Program in May 2009. She became a member artist the following month and says, “I love it!” Her favorite art form is acting and has been in two performances–one at the Royal Theater and one at Ruth Eckerd Hall’s Murray Theater. Lindsay recently co-wrote her first play called, “Bobbie and MaryAnne,” about a country band that gets stuck in a blizzard on the way to a gig in St. Paul, MN. Lindsay volunteers each week at Great Explorations Children’s Museum, Artworks retail shop, and Nina Harris Exceptional Education Center in Pinellas Park. When not working, Lindsay participates in Special Olympics track and field, soccer, swimming, and bowling. Lindsay’s hobbies include kayaking, sailing, watching movies, and learning sign language. Lindsay has an infectious positive attitude and is always willing to help out her friends and family. She is a wonderful part of the Creative Clay community.More →
Making the Arts Accessible to All
Creative Clay's vision is to make the arts accessible for all.
Creative Clay's mission is to provide expressive, educational and vocational opportunities in the arts for people with obstacles to arts access. We serve people with developmental, physical and emotional disabilities, as well as people in healthcare settings, children, veterans, and provide outreach art experiences in our community.
Creative Clay’s wide range of innovative programs, as well as its special events, celebrate community and the richness of our local and regional arts.
We now have seven arts programs to serve various populations who traditionally have been marginalized. Creative Clay programs include Community Arts, Creative Care, Artworks, Artlink, Summer Youth Arts Camp, Transition and Open Studio. These programs serve hundreds of individuals every week.
Creative Clay events include large annual celebrations such as the folk art and folk music festival Folkfest St. Pete, and the gala party Spring for the Arts. Together they draw more than 25,000 participants. Creative Clay also hosts the recurring events Creative Clay Happy Hour at American Stage, Creative Clay Courtyard Parties, and the monthly 2nd Saturday Gallery Walks.
Creative Clay is committed to promoting the work created by its member artists through bimonthly art exhibitions in our downtown gallery and various public venues throughout the greater Tampa Bay region. Please contact Creative Clay for information.
