Kids 2017- 2018 Class Schedule
POTTERY FOR ALL AGES
Spring Session will run for 9 weeks beginning April 17th and 18th (No classes May 15th and 16th) ending June 19th and 20th.
There are 4 great choices, please read carefully and choose the best class for your budding potter.
Teen/tween pottery with a purpose –Meets Tuesday 3:45-5:00 $235: This new class offered to the older and more experienced young potters gives them a little extra time to create and fine tune the quality of their wares. During this session they will make specific pieces to be fired in a primitive pit fire and raku fire. Students will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook with ideas.
Home School Pottery for 6-14 year olds – meets Tue: 2:30-3:30 $230: It’s back, I offered this class many years ago when I had friends active in the home school community those kids are 27 now. The idea of this class is to give kids lots of space to explore the medium of clay, and at the same time teach traditional technique i.e. pinch, coil, slab, wheel. Creations during the 9 week course will be fired in a primitive pitt fire and a Japanese Raku fire (weather permitting of course).
Clay play for 6-9 year olds – Meets Wednesay 2:30-3:30 $230: Designed for the younger potter, within the hour there will be plenty of time for imaginations to run wild at the same time maintain a strong emphasis on technique (how to sculpt and create and not have your work fall apart) Students must be mature enough to focus and stay seated for most of the class. No class Jan.31st day between semesters.
Functional and beyond 9-12 year olds – Meets Wednesday 3:45-4:45 $230: With imaginations leading the way, students will be encouraged to think through how they design each pottery piece. What is the purpose of this creation? Can you eat or drink out of it? Can you store things in it? Is it ornamental, does it have special meaning, or who might you be making this for? ….And has the piece been crafted with integrity? If group dynamics prove responsible enough we will end the session with a Japanese Raku fire (weather permitting). No class Jan. 31st day between semesters.
