Handbuilding with Clay (Ages 11-12)
Join us after school to continue your exploration into the arts! You’ll work in our professional studios with amazing local artists and educators. We have both weekday classes that meet twice a week after school, as well as weekend classes. No prior experience necessary! We welcome beginners and repeat students.
Learn to create a variety of ceramic forms with your hands. We’ll cover pinch pots, coil-building and low-relief sculpture, which will allow us to create small vessels and beautiful clay tiles. We’ll also cover some basics about firing and glazing.
- All materials and equipment provided.
