Clay for Littles - Age: 4-6*

We are graduating from Play Doh! This class is perfect for hands-on fun and skill building.

In this course, we will use cookie cutters to create ornaments, we will sculpt animals or their own creatures, and we will explore textures and colors with our kid-friendly tools and wide range of underglazes paints.

There will be a theme for each class, but some classes participants may choose to decorate their piece (from the week before) instead. Their curiosity and creativity will be encouraged while giving them goals for each class to eventually bring home and share with family and friends! 

*Please note ceramics requires two firings of your child’s work: one to bisque fire (or make the clay solid) and two to glaze clear over your child’s painting. Some pieces may take longer to dry and fire, please expect to pick up their final pieces 1-2 weeks after the final class. 

Please have your child bring their own water bottle. Art clothes & snacks are welcome.

Supplies: All art supplies will be provided.

Young Ceramists - Age: 7-10*

In this course, we will explore the magical nature of clay and all of the possibilities it offers to create three-dimensional art! We will learn and utilize handbuilding and sculpting techniques to make your child's creative vision come to life!

We will focus on themes such as: shapes and color, texture and form, storytelling, animals/creatures, and anything your child can imagine. These classes will encourage exploration of the imagination, develop observation of the world around us, and encourage skill building and problem solving through working with our hands.

Participants will be encouraged to create a work of art each class. These pieces will be painted with underglaze colors by your child and glazed by the instructor after class.

Please note ceramics require two firings in our kilns and final work will be retrieved a week after
our final class.

Please have your child bring their own water bottle. Art clothes are encouraged & snacks are

Parents, once you register for a Youth Class, we will email you a form to complete with additional information about your child. Please keep an eye out for this email 1-3 days after registering.

*Youth classes have been designed by age to be as pedagogically appropriate as possible, but the Academy recognizes that there are special situations where students are advanced for their age. Please inquire with the front office if you would like your child to be placed into a class that is not within their age range. Thank you
