Mosaic Stepping Stones – 10/4
Create a unique stepping stone for your garden using the ancient art of mosaics. Embellish your work with shells, smooth river rocks, mementos, marbles, broken dishes, and tiles embedded in grout.
Halloween Art – 10/25Create Picasso-esque witches, monster pop-up cards, and skeleton sculptures in this imaginative one-day class. Inspired by the Halloween season, we will work together to create take-home holiday decor.
Bountiful Platters – 11/15
Design and decorate a large, beautiful platter perfect for use during the holiday season. Draw and carve your own decorations and patterns into the platters using clay sculpting tools. Platters will be made of earthenware clay and will be finished with a low-fire glaze.
Claymation – 11/22
Bring a point-and-shoot camera or any “i” device with a camera (iPhone/iPad) and learn to make your own movies from beginning to end. Collaborate with your child as you build clay figures, dream up movie ideas, and create short claymation films. We will share special techniques to make your movies even more exciting.
Mosaic Holiday Gifts – 12/6
Participants will make three small mosaic projects during the class that are great for gift giving during the holidays. Everyone will also go home with instructions that they can use to make their own. Projects include a small painted “treasure box” with a mosaic tile top, a refrigerator magnet “mini mandala,” and a mosaic pendant with a ribbon cord.
