Clay Classes for Children

CLAY FOR KIDSKids at the wheel

Hands-on creative learning and fun!

In each Clay for Kids session, each child has the opportunity to:

Sculpt animals and objects and creatures of his own invention
 Roll out and decorate tiles and trivets and slab-formed bowls and vases
Learn to throw small cereal bowls, plates, pet dishes, and cups on the potter's wheel

We emphasize creativity and give the kids lots of latitude on what they choose to make.  We also have lots of ideas for any child who wants his imagination sparked!

We loosely recommend ages 5 and up, but younger children may do well if an adult stays and works with them.

Register your child (or children) for just one session or for as many as you like, picking dates ala carte that work for you, even mixing Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

NOTE THAT WE'LL SKIP THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING, SO THERE WILL BE A 3-WEEK INTERVAL INSTEAD OF A 2-WEEK INTERVAL IN NOVEMBER.

Tuesdays  3:45 - 5:15pm: 

Sep 13   Sep 27    Oct 11    Oct 25    Nov 8    Nov 29    Dec 13

Thursdays  3:45 - 5:15pm:

Sep 15   Sep 29    Oct 13   Oct 27   Nov 10    Dec 1   Dec 15

Saturdays  10:30 - Noon:

Sep 17    Oct 1    Oct 15    Oct 29    Nov 12    Dec 3    Dec 17
