Pottery/Clay & Wheel Throwing
NOTES: Summer session is live for registration. Evening classes fill up first. If you are seeing the class listed as an option at the link below, it is available! If not, email to be added to the evening waitlist. Fall session begins Sept 5th and registration open 3 months prior.
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.
Stained Glass & Drawing
Session Notes: Summer session is open for registration. Classes start June 19th.
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.
Drawing: Learning to See
If all you have been able to muster before is stick figures, this 8-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.
