Artworks & Supported Employment
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. Member Artist’s at Creative Clay are part of an interdependent business model that includes artistic training, arts related business management, marketing, and community outreach. Through the operations of the Creative Clay studio, gallery, and Artworks retail gift-shop, members learn the skills necessary to live as professional artists and profit directly from the sale of artwork and products. Participants in our program also gain valuable work experience applicable to a wide range of possible employment outcomes.
