This camp is designed to introduce clay hand building techniques. If your child loves to get dirty and wants to experiment with clay, then this camp is for them! In this camp, students will learn the basics of clay building and learn techniques such as pinch pot, coil building, and slab construction. From pots to cups to animated figurines, your student will have the chance to let their imagination go wild. Students will have the opportunity to glaze their masterpieces. Projects will be fired and ready for pickup 2 weeks after camp.

I am a painter who paints with fabric, fiber, textiles, threads, yarn, rusty metal, nails, discarded jewelry, small toys and other bits and bobs. Join me this week while I show you the tips and tricks to making small to really big art. When we talk about fiber or textile art, we are talking about sewing, embroidery, collage, crochet, knitting and quilting. Now some of those techniques take a long time to learn, and we only have a week, so I am going to teach you how to combine materials to make wonderful wall hangings or framed fabric art. This is where you can choose to work small, medium or large. Using textiles and the art of collage is a good way to let your own style and personality shine through your art. Learn how your choice of color, material, mark making and textures create different moods and add meaning to the art piece.
