Program Description

Re-imagine the sculptural possibilities of clay with an experienced art educator. Inspired by images of contemporary ceramic art, students explore hand-building techniques such as pinching, incising, imprinting, and sculpting. Art and science connect as students explore the concept of habitats by sculpting a world of living things. Clay included.
