For 60 years, the Clay Art Center (CAC) has been the largest and most active ceramics facility in Westchester county, dedicated solely to the advancement of the ceramic arts. Believing strongly that the arts has the ability to touch and enrich lives, our mission is to offer a stimulating space for studio practice, exhibition and educational opportunities to better serve the community. Our vision is to "kindle a passion for the ceramic arts and provide a community for that passion to flourish."
In CAC’s Community Youth Programs, students learn about the incredible qualities of clay. By offering this clay enrichment we are able to quench the thirst of budding young artists and enable them to create meaningful, lasting pieces of art. In the middle and high school programs, we strive to help youth be more responsible, employable and productive members of the community through the arts.
