Description

Class Experience

I've been playing with clay for over 40 years! I try to inspire my students to find their creativity and to see their art time as educational, productive, and therapeutic. They are encouraged to respect the process of learning a skill, to expect "imperfect" results while they are learning, and to keep practicing to improve.

Materials (have ready for the first session): Students will need at least one pound of clay. Choose the type of clay that best fits your preferences: If you purchase regular plasticine modeling clay (Amazon references: https://goo.gl/5kD4wn , https://goo.gl/Kyf4S7) the clay will not harden and can be used over and over again for new projects. If you purchase polymer clay such as Sculpey or Fimo (Amazon references: https://goo.gl/BjTPK9 , https://goo.gl/wzYyD1 ), it can be oven-baked and used to hold objects (not food-safe). Helpful items: *A covering for the table may be desired; parchment paper or even a paper grocery bag is fine. *Baby wipes are helpful for cleanup. *Something to use as a rolling pin for the clay; if you use one meant for food, you might want to donate it to clay use after the project. Rolling pins for clay aren't super expensive, and you could even use a 6-8" section of broomstick or a piece of thick dowel. *A knife for cutting the clay; a butter or table knife is fine. *A Lazy Susan or turntable of some type is nice, but please don't spend money on this if you don't have one-- that is, unless you really want to. :) *If oven-bake polymer clay is used, student may need help with baking the finished product, including access to an oven or toaster oven; baking instructions should be found on the package directions. You will also want a baking sheet for the oven, and parchment or foil to cover the pan.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
