Handbuilding with Clay (Ages 9-10)
For homeschool families, we offer studio-based arts courses in media that can be difficult to practice at home. Join a new community of other homeschool families and expand your students’ artistic skills and knowledge.
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.
