New Ceramics Class


We have a new 2-Day Kid’s Ceramics Class starting Wed, Feb 15th!
I’m excited 🙂 Working with clay is great for sensory development, motor skills, self expression, developing confidence, problem solving skills, discipline, and pride. Clay also has a therapeutic quality and can retain a child’s attention for hours.

ImageKid’s Ceramics $45 
Wednesday 5:30-6:30pm (see dates below)
Must Pre-Register, Space limited>>
(Age 5-10) In this class, students will explore handbuilding construction techniques; making functional items such as mugs, bowls, and picture frames … or imaginative/sculptural creations like animals, masks or a wind chime. Each child will take home glazed/fired pieces.

Classes taught by working ceramist, Kathryn Heaton.

We have 2 classes on the calendar to start; adding more as demand grows… 
• Feb 15, 22 = Make a Coil Bowl
• Mar 07, 14 = Make an Animal

The studio was busy during the month of December. Classes made holiday themed art, kids had gift-making in mind during Open Studio and we also participated in a couple community events. Here are a few pictures I have to share…

class: Beginning Art (Age 6.5-9)
project: Glitter Winter Paintings (click image for large photo)

Averyboo Arts

Students learned about abstract landscapes, composition, planning a design, monochromatic color, tints/shades; used acrylic paints, oil pens & glitter on 9x12 canvas board. This project took 3 sessions to complete.

what: Open Studio Re-cap
I usually don’t take many photos during Open Studio, but I snapped a few this month…

Averyboo Arts

Gingerbread Lollipops, Free Card Swap, open-ended art & gift making, natural ornaments, recycled snowmen & more.

class: Little Picasso’s (Age 4-6 years)
project: Poinsettia Collage

Averyboo Arts

Students used collage technique to make poinsettia pictures. Talked about how flower petals radiate from the center, worked on fine motor skills.

what: First Fridays Community Art Walk

The Girl Scouts had a homemade bake sale at the studio for December First Fridays. "Bixby Belle" stopped in with candy canes while the kiddos made holiday canvases.

NYE @ Noon Party - Limbo Stick

I’m going to try and post about the holidays & our NYE party over the weekend, but in the meantime, please enjoy this picture of my son. He thought this move would be easy (notice the hands in the pocket), but his face tells us otherwise 😉
