Animal Kingdom: Kids and Clay

Over ten weeks youth ages 9 to 12 will focus on the joy of creating fantastic animals with clay. There will be a variety of individual projects, and a larger collaborative project designed by the class. We will look at hand-building techniques for 3D forms and develop methods to decorate the surface of each piece. We will explore the before and after of kiln firing. There will be demonstrations, hands-on-help and group discussions. No experience necessary.

Students Should Bring:

  • Apron and towel
