October Series – Pottery

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

October 23

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

Halloween is almost here! How fun to have your own clay jack-o’-lantern and haunted house to light the night. Use pinch pot, coil and slab building techniques for your base, then embellish your pieces with haunted ghouls, bats and more. Finish your works with underglazes using sponging, stamping, sgraffito, drips, and drops. Pieces will be kiln fired and ready for pick up on Monday, October 28. Each finished piece will include a light!
