Description

6 WEEK CLASS. Ages 7 - 14, Meets once a week on Monday, 5:00 - 6:00pm CST. Dates: Jan 11 - Feb 22, no class Feb 15 for Mardi Gras

This class will explore various holidays and celebrations that take place in January and February! Students of beginner and advanced experience levels are welcome. Anything you can imagine can be built out of clay, and we will explore this incredible medium together. Campers will study the art of ceramics and learn various techniques for hand building with clay, including coils, pinching and slabs. We will also study elements of sculpture - shape, texture, form, and color. Projects include King Cake wreaths, Mardi Gras doubloons, commemorative MLK day plates, valentines gifts and more.
