Clay Classes at the Art Barn

KID’S CLAY

Kid’s Clay is a one day class for kids who enjoy the endless possibilities of shaping clay by hand. For students of all levels, this class includes creating with clay and glazing. Students will receive hands-on instruction on how to work with clay, but also enjoy the freedom to make their own choices for their piece.  This class is designed to enable kids to discover the fun and sense of accomplishment that comes with creating something special out of a lump of clay!

HAND-BUILDING WITH CLAY FOR KIDS

ADULT POTTERY WHEEL CLASSES

If you have never thrown on the wheel before and always thought about trying it, or if you have thrown in the past and are looking to get back at it, this class is for you!  Adult pottery wheel classes offer guided instruction to help you understand the entire clay process as you create clay pieces on the wheel.  Plus, they are a fun and relaxing way to unplug from your phone, get your hands muddy, and experience clay!  There are two class options, BEGINNER and LEVEL UP for those who have thrown before and want to take their skills to the next level.  Classes will meet 3 consecutive weekdays from 6:30-8:00pm.
