Mia Calixto is a manager at Painted Pot and a studio tech at Clayhouse. A Brooklyn born and raised artist, Mia loves painting, mixed media, photography, and ceramics. Mia is a self-taught potter who learned everything by observing the techs and instructors at this studio. In 2019, her passion for ceramics grew deeper after teaching “Clay & Art After-School and Summer Camp” classes. For Mia, the best part of teaching is watching kids create their ideas out of clay. “It’s amazing to see how much joy it brings them,” she says. Mia is currently a college student majoring in Communication Design.
