Saturday Art Class: Creating with Clay for Kids

$40.00Member Price: $35.00

SKU: N/A Categories: ,

Creating with clay for kids is offered as a monthly package, including two classes per month.

In this fun beginner hand building class, children age 5-12 will learn how to make their own masterpieces with coil, slab, and pinching techniques. Projects include 3-D creations such as bowls, vessels, boxes with lids, and sculptural pieces. Working with clay helps children develop problem-solving and fine motor skills, and encourages imagination, initiative, and curiosity.

Students will be using regular clay and glaze, and will also experiment with air dry and polymer clay. In this 2 class session, the first week students will make objects using regular clay, and they will be able to decorate and glaze the pieces in the second week.

This introduction into the process of ceramics requires firing pieces in the kiln, so the artworks will have to be picked up a week or two after the class. You will be contacted by the instructor when the pieces are ready to be picked up!

If picking up the piece(s) is not possible, please email sales@firstcityart.org for more options.

 

This class is limited to six students.
