Creative Clay Camp for Kids Ages 5 – 13
Working with clay develops coordination, concentration, and teaches kids how to transform ideas into creative expression. Our students will learn such techniques as: pinching, coiling, slab work, cartooning, abstract work, various textured applications, extruding, free-form, press-molding, and relief carving. We will also be providing textile design instruction and jewelry making to our classes. We will be working with dyes, fabrics, beads, glazes, acrylics, and watercolors. During each class they will be gaining knowledge about studio materials. Tuition includes materials, studio fees, firings, glazes, beads and paints. No experience is necessary. Please send your child along each day with a snack and water(half day campers) or two snacks, a lunch and a water(full day campers). On Monday or Tuesday, bring one plain white or light-colored cotton t-shirt or pillowcase for our Wednesday batiking project(morning and full day campers only).

If you are late to pick up your child, you will be charged a fee of $10 per 15 minutes. We reserve the right to discontinue services if a camper is unable or unwilling to follow camp rules and/or behavior guidelines. Camp fees will be forfeited.
The camp is taught by the owner, Susannah Sloan, and two assistants. The maximum number of campers per week is 25. There isn’t a registration deadline, but once a week fills up with the maximum number, it’s closed. We work on different clay and craft projects each week, so you can sign your child up for multiple weeks. Pieces can be picked up on the Tuesday following the week of class.
