Studio assistants are students who assist instructors and are responsible for maintaining the school’s standards for studio operation. They receive housing and meals and pay only a $5 application fee in Slideroom and a $25 non-refundable processing fee if selected.
Studio assistants are selected based on their knowledge of a working studio. In addition to 25–40 hours of work each week, studio assistants are required to work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the day before their session and may have some work to do on Friday after the session is over. Clay studio assistants have a work assignment on Saturday morning after the session and stay on campus Friday night.
- Scholarship application is through Slideroom: penland.slideroom.com
- Application deadline is 11:59 EST on April 3.
The workshops listed below are accepting applications for studio assistants.
Note: we cannot accept applications from studio assistants who are not US citizens unless they have current documents authorizing them to work in the US.
