Danielle McDaniel is best known since 1982 for her clay teaching program in the schools of middle Tennessee and The Clay Lady Way teaching modality for art educators. In 2007, Danielle and business associate, Tami Archer, purchased Mid-South Ceramic Supply and merged The Clay Lady’s Studio and The Clay Lady’s line of products into a facility on Lebanon Pike in Nashville, TN. Since the beginning, Danielle has worked to accomplish her vision of a community of artists that learn, support and succeed together – The Clay Lady’s Campus. We hope you plan to visit us soon and see what can happen when artists create together!
The Clay Lady's Campus is home to 45 on-premise artists, a total of 65 Co-op Members, sees 150 students weekly for on-going pottery classes, hosts 100-200 children and adults weekly for field trips and tours, and provides 10 weekend workshops annually. The Campus is committed to 4 community outreach events each year (although last year we did 11) raising thousands of dollars benefiting area art programs and creates opportunities that celebrate art; bringing together artists and art enthusiasts.
