October Series – Pottery

Participants must register by October 2nd. this class is part of a series.

October 9

Join us for our first afterschool clay program for young artists! Pinch, roll, coil, and slab to create unique pieces of pottery without using a potter’s wheel. Visit the OMA galleries for connections for design and application ideas. Learn how to refine your skills while exploring each session’s new forms and design offerings. You’ll have fun decorating your finished clay works with a variety of surface design applications including carving, stenciling, printmaking, painting and more. Come create with clay at the OMA!

DESCRIPTION

Visit the galleries for inspiration on how a piece of artwork can tell a story. Explore slab construction and learn how to create a special box using visual imagery to tell the story of you! Build handles, footings and other embellishments to make your box unique. Finish with texture tools, underglaze and learn sgraffito techniques where scratching the surface will reveal under layers of colors and clay. Your box will be kiln fired and ready for pick up on Wednesday, October 16.
