Camp Weekly Schedule

Sign up for Summer Camp 2020!

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.

Campers will learn such things as: pinching, coiling, slab rolling, abstract expressionism, and figurative design. We will be working with clay, 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.
