ONSITE: Family Studio: Clay Pinch Pot Trinket Dishes

Come and make art side by side as a family. Each week, families will explore a new medium and create a beautiful project together. Let’s play with clay and make something fun and functional! In this no-experience-necessary workshop, we will practice basic hand-building techniques such as forming, rolling, coiling and smoothing. Embellishments, like beads, can be added to projects for added color or attach clay features such as eyes, ears, and a tail to turn your pinch pot into a critter! Once dry, you can even paint your clay creation.

Special Notes

  • Please note that we have made change to family studio registration: Each person must individually register. Registered children must be accompanied by a registered adult. This program is best suited for families with children aged 3 to 8, however, all family members are welcome. All materials and equipment are provided. Artmaking activities will involve some messiness; please wear appropriate clothing.

    This class uses air-dry clay. Finished projects can be taken home and painted at a later date.

About the Instructor

Erin Powell

As a child, art gave me confidence, focus, and motivation in school. I spent my free time playing in the woods, drawing, and taking care of my many pets – which included several cats and even a small flock of sheep. My artwork today is filled with inspiration from these experiences, especially nature and animals.

I enjoy sharing my talents with others; to empower the struggling student, include the exceptional, and inspire anyone with an interest in creating. I have a BFA in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I previously worked as an elementary art teacher in Charles City County. Following the birth of my 2 lovely daughters, my focus changed to Early Childhood Education. I earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education from John Tyler Community College and am currently a lead teacher at a play-based preschool in Bon Air where my days are filled with art, music, and fun with the 3-4 year olds in my class.
