AMOCA is proud to offer free wonderful opportunities for children and families to spend quality time together while learning about their world and art together. Every exhibition that AMOCA produces includes a Family Day workshop – a program that’s free to ceramic enthusiasts of all ages. AMOCA has scheduled the following Family Days for our upcoming exhibitions. These coincide with the Pomona Unified School District calendar.
Family Day Hours: 1pm – 4pm
All are welcome to participate.
Children must have adult supervision.
Family Days for 2013 – MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Coiling is a method of creating pottery. It has been used to shape clay into vessels for thousands of years. It ranges from Africa to Greece and from China to New Mexico. By placing one coil on top of another, different shapes can be formed. Join us for a fun-filled day as we design fruit baskets, fruit bowls, or even a pencil holder (just in time for school) using coils!
Visitors will design and create a ceramic soap dish or ring hold using molds they have created using Styrofoam. Asymmetric, deep and long forms will be encouraged. The molds will be pre carved and sanded, then loaded with a textured slab and left to harden. Once leather hard, feet will be added to the slabs.
