After School Art for Kids (10-12)
The next 10-week session begins January 16th. Classes run for 10 weeks and students come in once per week. There are no classes during Manchester School Vacations or holidays. Please register early to ensure the class will run. All classes will focus on clay, with younger classes focusing on hand building and sculpture with a little pottery wheel, and the older kids focusing on the pottery wheel and dabbling in hand building/sculpture. Though the class is suggested 10-12 years old, mature 9 year olds and tweens/teens of any age can join the class.
The minimum is 3 students, and the maximum is 8 students. There are scholarship options available for kids. There is a Sibling or Referral Discount of 5%. Please contact us directly to apply these discounts.
HOME SCHOOL FAMILIES: With a minimum number of 3 students, we can hold a class at another time of the week to accomodate your schedule. Get a group of friends together and suggest a time that will work for you!
Tuesdays OR Fridays, 4-5:15PM, Clay, Wheel throwing: Students will learn the basics of throwing on the wheel. Starting with centering the clay, we will learn mugs, bowls, plates, decoration and more. More complicated forms will be added for students who are ready. We will intersperse various techniques of hand sculpting pottery. Wheel throwing is a joyous life-long practice! It takes time and persistence to get better, so students should not expect to master the craft in one class session. Students are welcome to take the class more than once.
