Clay

Pottery/Clay & Wheel Throwing

Fall 2021 update: All Evening weekday and Saturday 12-2 classes are full. Email to be added to the waitlist. We recommend signing up early for either the short 5-week session Dec-Jan or the next 10-week Winter session that starts mid-Jan. 

Learn the basics of throwing on the pottery wheel, from wedging and centering all the way to bowls, plates, decoration, lids and more. Students often repeat this class to gain more skills.

A bag of clay is included in your registration fee, but glaze firing is charged at 5 cents per cubic inch. The average glaze firing costs for an intro student session ranges between $15-$30, but this depends  on the student and what they make. Intermediate students tend to make more and make larger items, so may have higher glaze charges. We don’t believe it is fair to charge all students a high glaze fee across the board, because the glaze use from student to student can be so different!

Acrylic Painting CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. We will work from observation and photo reference in order to strengthen our understanding of how to apply paint to achieve certain visual effects. This class will involve both an academic approach and a chance to play. We will engage a series of short-term projects designed to support an investigation into the nature of color, texture, light and shadow. We will also work non-objectively, from imagination, experimenting with color schemes that create mood and evoke emotion through form. Reserve your space here.
