PCAI is an artist run initiative with all profits going back into the organisation to provide creative activities for our community and to support local artists. As well as school holiday programs we have regular term classes. If you would like information about children’s after school classes, please let us know.

This year Parramatta Clay and Arts Inc will be running school holiday programs for the first week of the holidays only. The second week our staff will be away in Gulgong for the 2016 international Clay Conference. Facebook.com/mansfieldceramics
