Kids K-6 will enjoy a real "hands on" course! The students will learn to transform a slab of clay into a one-of-a-kind masterpiece using techniques such as the coil, slab and pinch methods. Getting a real feel of how their hands and tools can work the clay, the students will shape it into bowls, banks, funny creatures and other decorative pieces. Students will also learn to "throw" a pot on the pottery wheel and take liquid clay and turn it into a three-dimensional casted sculpture. Once the clay has dried and been fired, the students will apply glazes to thier bisque pieces for beautiful color. Kids should come prepared to get their hands right into this craft!
Camp Zehnder is a beautiful setting for inspiring our young artists!
