Steven’s already begun planning and collaborating for some exciting classes and workshops and is excited to gear up for the upcoming season!
Pottery & Wheel Throwing for Beginners, Adults / Mondays, June 8 – July 28, 7 – 9:30pm
This class is designed for beginning students who are interested in a survey of ceramic techniques. You will learn a variety of hand-building methods, while also being introduced to the pottery wheel. Our guided projects will range from functional objects to whimsical sculpture. You’ll learn about applying dozens of decorative accents, and be given the freedom to explore your own self-expression.
Summer Studios, Ages 13-17 / June 23 – July 3 / July 14 – 18, 9am – 2pm
Learn what it is to be a working artist in a studio environment with a clothed model and drawing/painting mediums. Use what is studied and discussed with an experienced artist, combined with your imagination to create your own unique masterpiece by the end of the week. Sketchbook required. Spend the other week working on your skills in the ceramic studio. Class will cover wedging, centering, pulling, trimming, glazing and basic studio etiquette. Dress for mess! Be prepared for lots of laughs with a summer theme for most projects in a relaxed and jovial environment! (No class 7/4)
Ceramics For the Beach, Adults / Tuesdays, June 23 – August 18, 6-9pm
Learn wheel and handbuilding techniques to create works inspired by the beach! Projects might include creative trays for treats poolside, carafes and containers for your favorite tropical drinks, wind chimes for those summer breezes and maybe even sandcastles that won’t get washed away!
Date Night In the Ceramics Studio, Adults / Fridays, June 27 – July 5, 6-9pm
You can stay in any night of the week, but why not get creative and dirty in the clay room? Sign up with a loved one and learn to work with clay to create objects you can share, use and brag about to each other for years to come!
