Summer Clay Academy for Children and Teens
- TIME: 9:00 am to 12 noon
At CLM's Summer Clay Academy your child can pound, pinch, squeeze, roll, coil, twist and squish clay. While learning the fundamentals of hand building and mastering the wheel, they'll create beautiful pieces of art to cherish. Ages 7 to 18 are invited to attend.
We have seven one-week camp sessions with different projects each week starting in June. A special week just for TEENS (more Teen Week info below) is scheduled every July.
Our goal is to educate and still have loads of fun using clay as our medium. Even though there are set projects, we encourage children to use their imagination and proceed according to their own level of ability. Monday to Wednesday they hand build and throw on the wheel. Then on Thursday and Friday they glaze their ceramic pieces. Students' work will be ready for pick up a week after each session. We provide daily snacks for all students. All materials are included in the fee.
