CLAY FOR KIDS PROGRAM
A portion of every full price adult art class registration helps to bring clay to kids.
The more adults who sign up for classes in a given year, the more kids we can work with! The funds will be used to bring a mobile clay studio visit to a Manchester area non-profit that works with children who would not otherwise have the opportunity to work with clay. The call for nominations usually runs January-February. You can nominate an organization by emailing us the organization name, a contact person within the organization, and short explanation as to how they work with kids in need. Simple.
If there is more in the fund, we will provide scholarships to kids in our weekly art classes (home school & after school program). You can apply for our after school scholarship program by sending us your name, email, phone, and address, a short statement of need, and proof of income (last year’s tax report, ideally). Please remove any SSN information before sending us the proof of income.
The mobile clay studio can also be reserved for private parties…

Pricing: It varies from group to group. Please contact us with any requests. We are also happy to work with non-profits at a discounted rate.
What is included? All tools, materials, clay, instruction, firing, etc. is provided.
Is this paint your own pottery? NO! We work with wet clay. Participants get to create their pieces from scratch and then choose a glaze color for their creations. If working with a younger crowd, participants can also “paint” their projects when the clay is still wet with colored liquid clay. The pieces will be brought back to our studio and fired.
What kind of projects can we make? The project can be catered to the needs, interests, and abilities of your group. They can be sculptural, functional, boxes, cups, bowls, etc. Each participant makes one piece. $5 for any additional pieces.
Is there a Travel cost? Travel cost is $25 for locations inside Manchester. For locations outside of Manchester we charge $35 for within a half hour and $15 for each half hour of travel time beyond that.
How long does it take to finish the pieces? Please allow at least 4-5 weeks for the return of your work.
How many students for each class? Classes can be anything from 6 students to 15 students. If you have a larger group, there is still a possibility! Please contact us with specific questions.
