For ages 5-8: CLAY FOR KIDS

These classes introduce children to the wonderful medium of clay. Varied and exciting projects using handbuilding techniques, including animals, sculptures, containers, tiles and more will be undertaken. Both directed projects and experimentation will be supported and encouraged as each child's skill evolves. Pieces will be glazed and fired.



Children will be introduced to wheelthrowing methods of working with clay. They will learn to create forms such as bowls and mugs on the pottery wheel, and to decorate and glaze their finished pieces. Students will be encouraged to explore their own ideas on the wheel and use handbuilding techniques to enhance their work.
