Class Experience

In this class we will play with clay and make a variety of wonderful creations. Some examples of things we will make exploring the joy of clay are animal sculptures, fun tiles, small bowls and plates. Let's come together and get our hands in some earth.

-Paper Clay or Mexo-Clay, that self hardens. You can also participate with any clay-like media you have already, water-based clay, modeling clay or craft store clay off the shelf.
-Any shaping or wood crafting tools to add texture: skewers, toothpicks popsicle stick etc.
-Found objects to make unique impressions
-A piece of cardboard to use as your workspace for your projects


Richmond Art Center can provide local students with a small supply of clay on request. Students must be able to pick up their clay directly from the center on Thursdays from 11am-2pm.

My niece loved the different types of slimes she was able to make. She especially liked the magic sand slime.


My niece would have loved more types of slimes and she wishes that it was longer (more days).

It was fun to experiment with different type of coloring (food coloring or icing gels). My daughter loved the bubble art the best.

About Richmond Art Center

Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, delivering exciting arts experiences to people of all ages who reflect the diverse richness of our community. We do this through onsite Studio classes and Exhibitions, and offsite Art in the Community programs.The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936, when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond with a suitcase packed with art supplies, eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything we do at the Center continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: That within every person lives an artist.
