Clay Creations (Ages 6-8)
Calling all young ceramicists! Use hand building and learn basic clay skills like coiling, pinch pots and slabs to create one-of-a-kind objects from your imagination. Throughout the week, we'll create different projects with air-dry clay which can be taken home as soon as they're finished.
- Students will use air-dry clay, so work may be brought home on Friday.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
