CC5: Clay Camp
Monday Aug 9-Thursday Aug 12, 1-4pm for ages 10-14
Clay Camps are a great introduction to the world of ceramics! Your artist will have time to hand build (working with clay using just their hands and other simple tools) to create pinch pots, coils pots, and exciting sculpture! We will also spend time exploring the pottery wheel! Students will learn about wedging clay, centering and using fun and exciting techniques to create bowls and cups! Everyone will complete their projects by painting unique designs and patterns of their own choosing, using underglazes! Your artist will have functional pieces that can be used to eat and drink out of, as well as decorative items!
(Please note that clay projects will need to be fired in our kilns, a process that requires three weeks from the last day to complete)
*Is your child interested in attending multiple Clay Camps? GREAT! The more time your artist spends in the ceramic studios the better! Ceramic artists spend years developing their techniques, we would love to have your child to benefit from our phenomenal instructors and facility as frequently as they are interested!
Paramount Center for the Arts Summer Camps!
Our fun-filled camps are jam-packed with extraordinary opportunities to work with clay, painting and drawing, mixed media, glass projects and so much more!
Quick note about our 10-14 year old classes: Our older students will enjoy the focus of our structured classes that will help them develop their understanding and techniques of the medium that they are working in.
COVID-19 Safety Precautions
We are excited to be back in the Studios this Summer for in-person art camps! Our
COVID-19 protocols will be in place to help keep your family, our teaching artists, and our staff safe:
Masks: Masks will be required at all times
Limited Class Sizes: Classes will be smaller in capacity this Summer
Dedicated Classrooms: Each class will work in an unshared space the entire week
Social Distancing: Workspaces will be distanced, and common areas will be closely monitored
Cleaning: Cleaning will happen daily in each of the studios
Please note that camps are happening Monday through Thursday this year, allowing us to dedicate time each Friday to thoroughly clean each studio before the next week’s class uses the space.
Art Show: To limit the number of people in the studios, we unfortunately will not be offering Art Shows this year. Instead, each artist will gather their work into a portfolio and will have it with them outside for pick-up on Thursday. Clay pieces will need to be fired and collected three weeks after the end of camp. We will have additional details about clay pick-up in the future.
