Summer Day Camp - 2018
Every day students will spend some or all of the day creating with clay. Students hand build projects such as mugs, critters, plates & bowls as well as enjoy personalized instruction on the wheel. Each summer, every camper takes home fabulous works of art!
After lunch we enjoy the fully equipped park or doing drama and games in our air conditioned space.
This year we are adding a few extra activities on Thursdays while we wait for the children's work to come out of the kilns. We are currently just finishing off the scheduling for these activities. The dates will be posted here as soon as we have them.
