Clay is a unique material that artists and engineers have used for thousands of years to create functional and sculptural forms.  Clay has the special characteristic of being able to be shaped into almost any form in its plastic state, and yet become permanent and unchanging through the firing process.   In the clay studio, you will make a series of original art works that develop your personal creative process and build skills in a broad range of ceramics techniques and processes. 

Even if you think art isn’t ‘your thing’, this class is designed to help you develop skills valuable in any career or life path you choose.  These skills include creativity and innovation, critical thinking and creative problem solving, communication and collaboration, adaptability and self-direction, and social and cross-cultural skills.

WELCOME TO THE CLAY STUDIO!  I AM EXCITED TO SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH CLAY!
