Description

Class Experience

Learners will demonstrate knowledge and success in how to use the slab technique to sculpt clay into various objects. They will also demonstrate knowledge and success in how to score, slip and join clay pieces together.
I am an artist myself and have a kiln and make a variety of ceramics. I have been a children’s art instructor for the past 7 years. I have taught ages 7 to 18-year-olds. This clay class was popular. I taught ongoing classes and taught all these clay techniques and more. I have taken many art classes over a 10- year span and have developed all the techniques I teach from my own learning experience.
I have also homeschooled my kids and incorporated clay sculpting into their learning.
Air drying clay - white or grey in color Dental floss (parents please cut clay before each class. I have instructions on how to do that in the class video) Bowl or dish (that does not spill easily. The learners will be dipping their fingers in it to wet the clay) Water filled half full in bowl. wax paper for a nonstick surface while we roll clay out. A rolling pin or round wood piece to roll clay out flat. 3rd class only a sea shell or a plastic bowl that can be used for a mold last class only - Acrylic paint all different colors that you learner chooses to paint clay with. last class only - Small paint brushes Zip lock bags (for unused clay to keep it from drying out).
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please make sure each learner is in a quiet space and they know how to mute and unmute their microphone. How much they get to unmute will depend on how much noise is in the background.  

Some parent supervision may be required. Clay is messy but easy to clean up and does not stain clothes. Please talk with your child ahead of time where they can wash their clay filled hands when they are done. 

We need to use a plastic knife for scoring, or you can provide a pencil if you do not want your child to use a plastic knife.

If you have a kiln available to use, then you can purchase the kiln firing clay instead of the air-drying clay and the learners may use that for this class. All techniques are the same whether you use air drying clay or kiln firing clay. If you are going to fire the clay in a kiln, please contact me and I will give you specific instructions for that clay including the paint you will need (you will not use the acrylic paint).

Please remember that an Outschool requirement is that parents are not in the camera view at any time during class. If you need to assist your learner, please make sure you are not seen on screen while assisting.
