Pottery/Clay & Wheel Throwing
Registration update: Most 4-wk Session classes are full. Please email to be added to the waitlist. Sign up early for the winter session that starts January 16, 2023!
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.

Clay Hand Sculpting: Learn to create functional and sculptural pieces by hand, but without the pottery wheel. These 9-week classes are offered in-person.
Session Notes: Join in for a short 4-week sun catcher session Nov-Dec. Make a different sun catcher design each week. A great way to make gift before the holidays! All materials provided.
In the first class students create a sun catcher that covers the basic steps of the entire process of creating something out of stained glass. The techniques learned in the first class are refined and expanded upon in the rest of the classes. Students work on projects of their choosing and the teacher will be on hand for technical assistance and coaching the entire time. The class has a limit of 4 students ages 16 years and up. Introductory solder, foil, and flux are included in the $45 materials fee. Students will need to purchase their own glass for the projects that they choose to create during the class.

Water Color Painting

Drawing: Learning to See
If all you have been able to muster before is stick figures, this 6-week class is for you. Learn the basics of how to draw from real life. We will start with line drawing and work up to proportions and shading.
NOTE: This class will be offered again in November 2022.
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.
