Ceramics and Sculpture (week 1 of 2), 1:00-3:30pm

Choose to attend this camp for one week or two!  In order to allow time for clay to dry, be fired, then glazed, it's awesome to have two weeks to create some amazing finished works of art.  If you just have one week, we'll pack it with handbuilding, sgraffito carving, and glazing bisqueware -- super fun clay exploration!  $525 for two weeks, $295 for Week 1 only.  FULL*

July 24 - 27
