Course Description

Students with previous clay experience can pursue their own projects outside of a structured class in Independent Study. This program provides access to the hand building classroom, equipment and facilities. No instruction is provided in Independent Study. Students enrolled in Independent Study should attend the scheduled orientation meeting to receive studio information, clay and shelf space.

We require that you have been enrolled in at least one previous class at AAN prior to your enrollment in this program(or by approval by the Director of Education).

OPEN STUDIO TIME Additional studio hours are available to adult students who are registered for this program.

AAN is able to provide scholarships/tuition aid through the Healing Through the Creative Arts Program. This program is made possible through funding from the Town of Nantucket Human Services Department. For questions or assistance please contact Elizabeth Buccino, Director of Education
