Visit Montana's artiest town for a crash course in indoor creativity.
Get inspired: Ceramic artists from around the globe come to the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts for inspiration. An old tile-and-brick company has been transformed into an artist-in-residence program, a gallery, and a space for community classes. Wander the grounds to see the beehive kilns and the dramatic ceramic mementos that the sculptors leave in appreciation―some 30 feet high, others small and quirky, hidden among the grasses until you round a corner and come upon them.
Try it yourself: Get some mud on your hands in weekend clay workshops. Visit their web site for details. 2915 Country Club Ave.; archiebray.org
