Camp Weekly Schedule

Sign up for Summer Camp 2017!

Kids love clay! If your children are looking to explore the world of ceramics and hand building clay, this is the perfect camp for them! We provide the basic guidelines for sculpture such as how to properly attach pieces using slip and scoring techniques. We encourage kids to use their imagination in combination with the skills they’ve acquired in camp to create mystical creatures, animals, coil pots, and more.

Our students will learn such things as: pinching, coil work, slab rolling, abstract expressionism, free form, and relief carving. We will also be providing textile design instruction in the form of batiking and beading to our classes. We will be working with dyes, fabrics, beads, glazes, and acrylics. During each class, they will be gaining knowledge about studio materials.

Tuition includes materials, studio fees, firings, and paint. No experience is necessary. Please send your child along each day with a snack and drink. On Monday or Tuesday, bring one plain white or light-colored cotton t-shirt or pillowcase to batik on Wednesday.
