In Clay Class, we explore how a lump of mud becomes a shiny ceramic object. Each week students are introduced to a basic hand-building technique. What they make using the skill of the week is entirely up to the student! This class supports our theme of the school year, Sustainability and the Environment as clay is derived directly from the and is one of the most natural materials you can use to make art.
