Designed for kids ages 10-12, this class offers pre-teens the opportunity to learn the basics of wheel-thrown pottery. Teaching Artist Kristine George will engage students at their personal skill level, helping them to improve and expand their technique. Students will learn to master the methods and techniques of making pottery on the wheel through demonstrations, hands on exercises, and plenty of individual instruction. Problem solving, how to fix and improve pottery through experimentation, using glazes and underglazes, and explaining the process of firing will teach students skills beyond their art, including leadership skills, engineering, and chemistry. All materials are included.
