Opening its doors in late July of 2020, following a year of planning and space renovation, the Taos Ceramics Center made a giant leap in the evolution of the ceramic arts in Taos and Northern New Mexico.
The staff and members of TCC are committed to elevating the presence of ceramics in this magical land of Taos where the earth's resources and local heritage are treasured, perhaps more so than anywhere else in this nation. Our vision is one of community involvement and support, an educational resource for all ages, a retail
ceramics supply store, and an interdisciplinary gallery showcasing some of the best in ceramics and the visual arts.
The TCC plans to create a non-profit subsidiary, Creative Taos, that will encourage financial participation to help fulfill our mission of becoming the Southwest's premier educational environment for the furthering of ceramic arts.
Beginning in May of 2023, we will host two resident artists on campus at a recently purchased adjoining two bedroom home. In 2024-25 on an abutting parcel of land, plans are already underway to build an independent, 2400 square foot, dedicated educational facility where we can host renowned ceramic artists, from near and far, to hold workshops, symposiums, and conduct seminars for sharing their experience and knowledge. The educational center will also host all TCC classes and enable the TCC to introduce a ceramics program, through outreach, to the public, private and charter school students of the greater Taos community.
