Clay Club

Clay Club open to 4th-6th grade students and is held on Tuesdays after school until 4:30.  There are two sessions one in the fall/ winter and another in the spring for 8 weeks each.

  

4th-6th grade students interested in joining Clay Club for the spring session must have a signed permission slip handed in by Wednesday, January 30th.  The final lottery will be drawn and students will be notified Friday, February 1st.

In Clay Club, our artists are working with a variety of different tools and materials.  One of which, is the pottery wheel!  We will be rotating 4-5 students per session, so that everyone gets their turn at "taking the wheel"!

 

There are a lot of steps to working with the potter's wheel.  During each session, I will have a video available, explaining the steps.  Click below to see my demonstration, so you can get an idea of what it'll look like.

 

I encourage you to look at the approaches of other clay artists so you can see different techniques.
