Want to make a bird? A fairy house? A mask? The sky's the limit, just bring your imagination! I will share some simple techniques along with inspiring examples of clay sculpture. Working with your hands and heart we will get to have some mud fun together!
- Cardboard square as a surface to work on
- Wooden skewer
- Butter knife
- Pens or pencil
- Things to press into clay, for example: beans, rice, pasta, twigs, leaves, flowers, shells, buttons etc..
- Small strong paper plate and bowl, or ceramic plate and bowl with plastic wrap (second choice not as easy to work with)
- Only if you happen to have: tape, acrylic paint or tempera paint with brush
- Towel to dry hands

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.
