Youth Ceramics Classes

Ages 4 – 7

Kids learn the basics of creating ceramics, including hand-shaping, using a wheel, and the science behind making colors through glazing.

  • Youth Classes
  • Youth & Family

During the 8-week session, students will learn a progression of skills by working on a different project each week.

Classes will begin with several hand-building techniques (pinch pots, slab and coil), and then transition to learning to work on pottery wheels.

Kids learn patience and have a lot of fun while building a basic understanding about the longer process of pottery and ceramics as an art form.
