About the Event

The Shape Clay Together class is a fun opportunity for one child and their adult guardian to enjoy creating together. Through guided instruction, the teams of two will learn pinch pot techniques to create unique turtle and frog shaped vessels. Basic ceramic hand building techniques will be taught so participants can embellish their pieces with coils and textures from nature. The ceramic pieces will be finished with colored underglaze slips and clear glaze. Because the pieces will need to be dried and fired in a kiln, the artwork will need to be picked up at a later date. The class will take place at Peter Johnson’s Terrestrial Forming Pottery Studio.

About the Instructor:

Mrs. Rogers is an artist and retired elementary school art teacher from Whitehall. She has taught at the ACWL-Nuveen Center for years, is a Gallery Member Artist and an active member of the Board of Directors.

COVID-19 Considerations:

Class size is limited to 5 teams. Students will be spread out throughout the pottery studio and each team will have their own set of sanitized supplies. Students should wear masks, use the provided hand sanitizer, and abide by social distancing mandates.

ACWL-Nuveen classes are supported in part by grants from the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nuveen Benevolent Trust.
