Clay Art Summer Workshop 2021

Can your child ever get enough time to play with Clay? Send them to the Studio for this four-morning Workshop where they will work with clay using hand built techniques.

If you’ve ever worked with natural clay, you know that it needs to dry thoroughly and be fired into bisque in the kiln before it can go home. Please make sure your student knows that their Clay Art pieces will remain at the Studio at the end of the workshop. We will schedule a pick up day for you after the pieces are fired. During the workshop, students will glaze a pre-made bisque and they will be able to take it home at the end of the workshop.

Details will be provided during the workshop about a Studio Glazing Day later on for students who want their pieces to be finished off with a colorful shine.

Students will focus their efforts exclusively and intensively on Learning, Creating, and Celebrating Art, with one or two short breaks during the workshop. Students should bring a packed lunch and drink.
