The Dedham Square Artist Guild has teamed up with the Dedham Community House to offer art classes. My next Clay Class for Kids is Monday, January 27th – last day to register is Friday, January 24th.
Clay Class for Kids (first grade and older) will be a “Valentine’s Day” themed class. Last year I taught my students to create a pinch pot that they decorated, some made heart shaped bowls. There was also an opportunity to make a flat tile so that students could play with surface elements like stamping and adding clay elements. Using non-toxic red and white paint, students decorated their work.
For this year’s class, we may try something different.
I clear coat the students works of art and fire them in a kiln (at Potters Place, my cooperative studio in Walpole). Finished artwork will be available toward the end of February at the Dedham Square Artist Guild Gallery, 553 High Street in Dedham Square.
