In the classroom, aspiring young artists will develop their imaginations and build confidence, while working in the transformational medium of clay.  Our nurturing teachers, who specialize in kindling a passion for creative expression in children, know how to make our camps special by creating an atmosphere of learning, fun, and friendship.

Focusing on wheel throwing, hand-building, and sculpture, campers will be shown a variety of techniques on and off the wheel.  In today’s technology-driven world your child will discover the satisfaction of creating something with their own hands. They will craft everything from fantastic beasts, fairies, and castles to handmade cups, bowls, and plates that your family will treasure forever.
