Beginner to advanced

During this two-week camp, your child will explore their creative side while learning the technical skills of ceramics and pottery all wrapped in a blanket of fun. This is a remarkable experiential program where our expert instructor meets each student at their individual skill level, allowing for self-discovery and guidance.

Students will explore the uses of different types of clay and practice techniques for hand-building as well as glazing and firing. Students will also construct personal statements during our two weeks together through a variety of conceptional projects, including a story plate, a tree-of-life tile, a personal impressions vase, and a sculptural container.

All projects are constructed from raw clay and finished with professional glazes. Camp culminates with an art show in the Silva Gallery of Art for parents and friends! Appropriate for beginners to experienced artists, everyone will have a great time and will learn new skills!
