Clay Camp at AMOCA 2015

 

It’s time to think about how you will be spending your summer vacation! Sign up for a session for an exciting opportunity to get muddy!

Clay Camp at AMOCA begins the week of June 15, 2015 and runs through July 10, 2015. Camps are available for ages 5–16, allowing kids of many ages to delve into the process of creativity with clay! AMOCA provides a high-quality enrichment experience in the visual arts for children and teens. Sessions are taught by professional artists who design fun, challenging and educational projects. Students will be encouraged to explore their own ideas while discovering the possibilities of clay.

During camp, young artists examine ceramics by learning a new technique or begin a new project each day, dabbling in pinch pots, coils, and slabs. Participants have the option of registering for a half-day session or a full day session. The schedule of classes is designed around age groups and interests.

Clay sessions take place in the Clay Corner in AMOCA’s Ceramics Studio. All work is fired for permanence.
