Clay Fest  12+

Please come join me for a fun hand building class. Young artists will learn how to make their own masterpieces with coil, slab, and pinching techniques. In this class we will hand build 3D creations of our own vision. Some possibilities are bowls, boxes with lids, vessels and sculptural creatures or structures. Once we learn some basic clay rules and how to build, the possibilities are endless. Experimentation with ideas, texture, tools and form is encouraged. A class or two will allow for some wheel throwing opportunities and fun.

We will be using regular clay and underglazes (Clay Paint) to enhance our creations. The Ceramic Studio Tech will glaze the work and fire it for us. The process of ceramics requires firing pieces in the kiln, so the artworks will have to be picked up a week or two after the class. You will be contacted by the instructor when the pieces are ready to be picked up!

Working with clay helps develop problem-solving and fine motor skills, and encourages imagination, initiative, and curiosity.

All materials and firing included. Come ready to get muddy. We will have a whole lot of fun and be creative. Please bring water and a snack.
