Youth - Teen Clay Camps
Ready? Set! Throw!
Let's explore what clay can do!
Join us as we explore a variety of hand building techniques and the potter's wheel to create cereal bowls, cups, sculpture forms and more! Our instructors will demonstrate how to throw and mold amazing creations in the studio.
Youth Camps are 1 week (M,W,F) 10 AM - 3 PM.
Teen Classes are 5 weeks (Every Tues.) 4:30 - 6 PM.
Price is per person, materials + kiln firing costs are included!
Every camper must fill out a Clay Camp Registration From.
Payment is Non-Refundable.
Items must be picked up about 3 weeks after last class.
Hand Building: Campers will work with their instructor to create imaginative projects utilizing color, texture, and design. Teens will work on projects designed to be fun and informative.
Throwing: Each day will have a designated time for your child to practice on the potter's wheel. Teens will choose pottery wheel or hand building as their focus for the 5-week course. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty!
Glazing: Projects will be glazed using underglaze colors and clear glaze. Some pottery w ill be dip-glazed only. Occasionally we will paint a project with craft paint. Items will be functional if your child made them with that intent in mind.
Youth Clay Camps
Your kids will have a blast this summer participating in Clay Camp at AA Clay Studio! We have over 10 sessions available to fit just about any schedule. Your child will learn the basics of hand building (techniques like pinch, coil, and slab) and wheel throwing (using the potter's wheel). Each student will have several finished glazed pieces to bring home at the end of every session.
One week camps are 3 days long, 5 hours each day.
We will have a lunch break scheduled each day.
Please plan to pack a sack lunch.
