Spring Break: Hand Building with Clay with Bev & Ray Niebergall (Ages 10-13) – CANCELLED

12:30 – 2:30pm.
This wonderful workshop is designed to introduce your child to the magic of working with clay! By squishing, rolling, building and glazing, the children will use different techniques and methods to create wonderful works of art such as an animal pinch pot, mug, vase, bowl, mask or a choice of another project while learning the basic hand-building techniques of coil, pinching and slab. This is a great opportunity for children to use their imagination and inspire their unique creativity!

Spring Break: Fun with Clay with Bev & Ray Niebergall (6-9 yrs) – CANCELLED

For ages 6-9 : Mar 16 & 25 : 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
It turns out that working with clay encourages growth and skills such as: motor skills, sensory development, problem solving skills, curiosity, self worth and self expression. It is exciting to see the pride a child exhibits when creating their own “masterpiece”. Touching clay is very centering, calming and therapeutic. Working with clay gives you permission to get your hands mucky! It touches our basic human spirit.
