Class Experience

FOR THOSE REGISTERING FOR SPRING SESSION (STARTING IN APRIL):


*Please note due to a technical glitch, Spring session classes are all starting a week later than the registration shows. The correct dates can be found on our website pages for each class.*


Learn life time art skills to grow with that will help you develop your individualized goals as an artist!


Students will learn how to build with clay when they learn about the hand building skills of coils and slabs as they build pottery and sculptures. They will learn the techniques and methods of throw on the wheel also which is always so much fun to learn about! If interested, the students will also have the opportunity to work with additional three dimensional media such as paper mache, wire, cardboard, and found objects to help build their knowledge of three dimensional vocabulary and techniques!


Ceramic class offerings will be based on Hand Building Skills—pinch pots, coil pots, slab building. Each age group will learn the basic hand building skills to prepare them for our upcoming wheel throwing classes.  


Students will be split into groups based on their age: 7-10, 11-13, and 14-17.


IMPORTANT: When firing pieces in the kiln, Blue Door Studio is not responsible for quality damage during firing, which is sometimes an unpredictable and uncontrollable occurrence due to air bubbles, glaze applications, etc.  


Please Note: Ceramic classes require sneakers, no flip-flops, and tied back hair in ponytails for safety purposes when wheel-throwing.

Notes

This is an 8 week course. An additional class will be offered to account for the class that is lost due to the holiday.
