Young Artists - Ages 9-12

This class will focus primarily on working with clay, but will also offer a drawing and painting opportunity. The students will learn three basic ways of hand building with clay, which are pinch pot, coil and slab methods. And, naturally, we want to make it fun! We will make a watermelon bowl (pinch pot), a basket (coil method) and a trinket box that looks like a slice of pie (slab method). 

The drawing will be on a school folder and feature the student's choice of a famous landmark. It will be finished with colored pencils if time permits or left as a pen and ink drawing. For our painting experience, we will paint a dragonfly on a canvas, with acrylic paints.

Our final week will be spent glazing our clay projects. These projects need to dry thoroughly and be fired in a kiln, before we are able to paint them. They will then be glaze fired. This work should be ready for pick up within two weeks of the last class. Ages 9-12.

Class size is limited so please register early.
