*Sliding scale tuition: Part of our mission, as a non-profit, is to create access to art education for everyone in our community. To this end, we offer sliding scale tuition on select workshops at TNL. Lower pricing is available for those facing financial hardships. Other students may choose to 'pay it forward' by choosing a higher price than the suggested cost, thereby helping a student in need.
Instructor: Lynette Errante
Make extraordinary sculptures and develop clay skills in hand building and ceramic design! Young artists will experiment with traditional techniques in ceramic-making, including pinch, coil, and slab methods. Then, they will learn about the process of adding textures and glazes to enhance their unique artwork.
Each week will focus on a different clay technique in a creative way to create a sculptural or functional pieces of ceramics. All pieces will be glazed at the end of the 6 weeks for kiddos to take home! All levels welcome!
*If your child took kids clay hand building in the April/May '23, we will be doing NEW projects!
