Ceramics for Kids with Trisha Taylor - SOLD OUT!

Saturdays, 12-1:30pm, March 30th-May 18th

Youth Class (8-15yrs old)

In this class, young artists will learn how to create pinch pot forms and pedal bowls  We will start off by having each student create a pinch pots blindfolded! This is a fun and silly way for young artists to understand that feeling the thickness of clay is more important than seeing the clay. After creating pieces with the pinch pots, we will move on to create pedal bowls, learning all the while how to use clay to create forms. As the class moves along, the students will use their new information on clay to create a piece that interest them..  Each student will choose their glazes and take home wonderful ceramic pieces after the final kiln fire.
