Clay Creations
Are you ready to get messy? Rising 2nd - 6th Grade students are invited to come and get elbow deep in slip and clay for five days. As one of the oldest and most versatile art mediums, clay is a great for developing motor skills and building a solid understanding of 3-dimensional space. Working through the artistic process, the group will begin by exploring different properties and possibilities of the medium before sketching a plan, practicing with a maquette, and sculpting a final piece.
