Bring your child to have fun with clay! During this 4-week workshop, your child will be introduced to the wonderful medium of clay. Varied and exciting projects in hand-building, including animals, figures, faces and more will be undertaken. They will learn techniques to create a small size clay figure or animal. Your child will be able to sculpt wild and wonderful clay art pieces using special air-dry clay. They will create a 3-D clay sculpture, paying close attention to details such as; color, shape, size, texture, body and facial features. While playing with clay, your child will have the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation forthis important art form and to learn the differences between two- and three-dimensional art; all while participating in this exciting and fun hands-on experience.
An apron and their finished art piece will be theirs to keep and take home after the last class. All clay, tools and paints provided. [Class limited to 10 students.]
