Pottery Wheel for Kids – 7 Years and Up

Pottery_Wheel_Kids

Come to the Workshop and see what all the fun is about!

You can learn to throw clay on the wheel in this 8 week course and have some really cool pottery to take home.The class will cover wedging, centering, pulling, trimming, use of tools and surface techniques. Basic small to medium vessels will be taught (such as cylinders and small bowls). Students will also learn basic glazing techniques. Each student will work on their own wheel and learn the basics of throwing and shaping clay. If a student has already participated in our pottery wheel class or camp, this class will help them develop  the skills that they have learned and take them to the next level of proficiency.  Students should wear old clothes because work on the potter’s wheel can get messy. Classes are held once weekly for 8 weeks. A missed class can be made up on another class day. Class is limited to 8 students and will be cancelled if enrollment is below 4 students.  So bring your friends!

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE CLASS

That’s awesome! Did you know that Jackson Pollack really wanted to be an artist but was not very good at drawing? So he created a different way to make art. Action painting or splatter painting is what it’s called.  Kids LOVE learning this stuff!  Understanding the lives (particularly the childhood) of artists is an important part of the appreciation of art and experimenting in art.  Seeing how others used supplies and techniques is just inspiring!  That’s why art history is a big part of our classes.

Class format begins with an artist or art history reference, story or slide show.  Students brainstorm about how to use what we’ve just learned to create their own work of art.  Sometimes a short demo is included.  This takes no more than 10 minutes.  Kids have the rest of the class time to create using clay, wood, wire, paper, watercolor paint, acrylic paint,  or craft materials.

Our goal is to facilitate creativity and teach your child art history and techniques.  In the process they have fun and create awesome things!
