SUMMER CAMP Week 2, AM – Clay Creations

There’s nothing like sculpting with clay! Pinching, rolling, slipping and scoring…glazing and surface decoration… we explore all of it in our Clay Creations summer camp!

  • June 12-16 / 9:00am-11:30am
  • Age 6-10
  • All materials and water provided. Please bring a water bottle and snack.

Hand-building clay methods are explored, kids learn about the firing process and various surface finishes, including glazing. Artists get messy playing with clay, so please arrive dressed for mess!

Early in the week we create and sculpt our pieces to allow for drying, glazing and firing by week’s end so campers can take home their finished work.

Here at Twig and Berry Art Studio, we like to provide opportunities for artists to enjoy exploring creatively. With an idea, some inspiration and proper guidance, children learn to trust themselves and build artistic confidence. In this “open studio” creative environment, this is where the magic happens and kids get into it! Practicing and learning new art skills, problem-solving and exploring art mediums that spark curiosity while having a blast, finding joy in the process of creating…the perfect artistic equation.

Kids will learn creative thinking strategies, try materials and processes in new ways, be exposed to traditional techniques and processes, observe and learn from other famous and current artists, have the chance to take creative risks, problem solve, collaborate, and make ideas that they get excited about.

Your child will bring home work that represents where they are in the artistic process. If your child hasn’t had much experience exploring media, techniques, and processes, that’s perfectly ok! They may bring home more practice and exploration work. If they already do a lot of art and have developed a preference and style, they may bring home a piece that they have put many hours into that week. Our teaching artists give lots of 1:1 guidance after the group demos and creative brainstorming activities and we tailor our art instruction to the kids in attendance.

Twig and Berry Clay Creations is an evolving creative environment, and can be experienced multiple times because we always offer something new and allow kids to express their own emergent ideas.
