Campers will expand their imaginations while accomplishing LASTING FEATS OF CLAY. Whether working with sculpture, tiles, or wheel-thrown pottery, students will learn to work INDEPENDENTLY AND COLLABORATIVELY in a small class setting with plenty of individual instruction. Camps are offered in a variety of themes (birds or dinosaurs, serving platters or ice cream dishes, giant vases or tiny garden houses) and they incorporate instruction for a variety of clay techniques—leaving PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EXPLORATION and decoration.


Half-day camps meet for three hours each day (from 9 am – 12 pm or 1 – 4 pm) and include a short break for snacks provided by parents and caregivers. Half-day camps do not include lunch. Full-day camps meet for 7 hours each day (from 9 am – 4 pm unless otherwise noted) and include an hour-long supervised break for lunch and non-clay activities. Parents should provide snacks and lunches for full-day campers. Each camp is led by a teaching artist; on average one additional teaching assistant is present for each camp. New camps begin each Monday, June 8 through August 10.


Please call to find the appropriate age and skill level for your child. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions to the published age restrictions.
