Clay Creations (Ages 3-6)

This program invites your child to engage in his or her curiosity and imagination while working with a teaching artist to learn basic, introductory ceramics concepts. This program is taught with a process approach in order to instill positive self-esteem in your child. Program fee includes glazing and firing for a final keepsake to take home. Parents are welcome and encouraged to join this class.
