Class Experience

Students will learn the basic methods and techniques of hand-building with clay.
This class is taught by an Artist with a Fine Arts Degree, with a Focus in Ceramics. I am SO excited to teach what I've learned over the past 16 years working with clay! Please see my profile, for further information regarding my Artistic background.
There will be the occasional assembly required after our clay pieces have dried. For example, the week we create our Wind Charms, a stick and string will be used to assemble the finished piece. (Students will be directed how to do this during the class)
Students will also be encouraged to paint their creations in the week following the class, if they choose to. (Acrylic paint is great for this) They will have the opportunity the following week to show off their finished piece.
-Any type of clay!- Students will need up to 1lb of clay/class
(I will be using white Crayola Air Dry Clay- it can be found at Target, Amazon (also sold in bulk), or any craft store. It feels just like regular ceramic, it's affordable, paintable, and dries hard without the need of an oven or kiln)
-Water cup, toothpick, butter knife, and piece of cardboard or paper plate to create on - If there is anything else needed for that weeks project, such as a ruler, marker cap, handless cup, straw, etc... I will post it in the classroom notes in advance

1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
