teen summer camp:
instructed by amy smoot
In this class, clay meets humor as students bring their favorite internet memes to life! Students will learn how to build 3-4 functional cups or mugs utilizing hand building techniques such as slabs, coiling, and pinching clay. Once pottery forms are built, students will learn how to transfer their memes from paper printouts to their clay forms using a very simple trace and imprint technique. Students will then be able to finish their designs using the colorful glazes provided.
This class is for teens ages 13-16. This class has a minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8. If the class does not meet the minimum, participants will be refunded.
