Afterschool Clay Creations

Dates: Wednesdays- Nov 10, Nov 17, Dec 1

Times: 4:30 to 6pm

Prices: $65 for all 3 classes

During the class we will explore various clay techniques and finishes. With a focus on handbuilding the children will create art through both teacher-guided and self-guided experiences. Clay is such a great medium as all 5 senses are used! The calming feel of smooth clay pressed into whatever shape your child can imagine. A great class for all kids. Students will have opportunities during the class for creative expression through decorating and painting themed activities.

The first week we will make our own beads to make either a necklace, keychain or window hanger. Then using a pinch pot method and the slab roller we will create a hot cocoa mug and saucer. In the second class we will finish up our mug and saucer and begin painting the beads and planning out our accessory.

The last class we will talk about color palates and how through various color combinations it can change the feeling our projects can give us.

All projects will be ready for pick up the week following class.

Sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/204296023907.  TICKETS ARE $65 for all three classes, not $65 each.  You only have to purchase tickets for one day.
