Working with Clay

Classes at the Clay Art Center are focused on improving the skills of all students, building on their current expertise. Individualized instruction will enable a student to create vessels on the potters’ wheel, build a vessel with coils or slabs of clay, or design a tile wall plaque.

Students will complete their projects by creating texture or surface decoration using slips, engobes, and glazes. Advanced techniques using wax and/or sgraffito will help create beautiful surfaces.
