Children & Teens classes
for 6 - 18 years old
The art of shaping clay by hands has a long tradition, paralleling the history
of human being. It is also a craft that requires minimal equipment. Homemade
carved sticks or purchased wooden modeling tools may be used, but the only
real necessities are hands, clay and imagination.
Fun clay projects will introduce children to basic hand-building techniques
including the pinch, coil, and slab methods as well as basic elements of
Papier-mâché. They will be introduced to a different vocabulary while creating
bas-reliefs and freestanding sculptures. Students will have plenty of opportunity
to build and
improve their skills.
