Peter Berry Scholarship

Peter Berry and his work at the 2019 Holiday Show and Sale


The Peter Berry Scholarship will provide financial assistance for adults (18+) enrolling in Ceramics Program classes. The focus of this scholarship will be to provide access to the Ceramics Program to those in financial need.

These scholarships are supported in part by many generous individuals who have made financial contributions in memory of Peter Berry, an instructor, longtime studio artist and staff member. The opportunity to welcome new people into our community and support returning students reflects Peter’s love of making community, the ceramic arts and his generosity of spirit.

If you would like to apply for a Peter Berry Scholarship, email Director Kathy King at
