About the event

Join us for a special ceramic sculpting camp where kids can create their very own pet portraits out of clay. This camp is designed for children ages 8-12 who have a passion for both animals and art.

On the first day, participants will learn the basics of clay forming slab techniques to create fun and detailed pet portraits. Our instructor will provide guidance and support as kids work on bringing their furry friends to life in clay form.

On the second day, participants will have the opportunity to use underglaze slip to add color and finishing touches to their pet portraits. 

Students will need to pick up their finished pieces following a final glaze firing that will happen AFTER the final class. Students will be notified when their pieces are ready for pick up.

Class minimum: 4

Class maximum: 7

A Note about the Class Fee

The cost to run a clay class is more than most ACWL-Nuveen classes due to the time and literal energy it takes to fire the kilns. However, if the $25 class fee is prohibitive, please reach out to and we will do whatever we can to make this class accessible to you!

About the Instructor:

Like many great love stories, Kim’s love for ceramics began in high school. She loved the limitless dynamics of the art form, and it’s been her passion ever since. Recently,  she’s been apprenticing with Peter "The Potter" Johnson, the local master potter working at Terrestrial Forming in Whitehall. She’s now excited to begin her own journey creating and teaching pottery to other art lovers.

ACWL-Nuveen Summer Art Camps are supported by the Lothmann Family Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
