Clay Camp at AMOCA
Since the early 90’s arts education has steadily been removed from our local school systems. To help expose kids to the arts and specifically to ceramics, we offer a yearly summer Clay Camp at AMOCA for school age kids. Click here to learn more about Clay Camp at AMOCA.
Your scouts can earn a badge at AMOCA’s Scouts Day. Docents will take your group on a tour of the museum’s current exhibitions and ceramic studio. The will learn how clay is made, stored and recycled. They will also learn how wedging improves the clay, how artwork is stored during the creative process and how the artwork is fired. Scouts will discover different firing methods available at AMOCA. Scouts will see the insides of the kilns, learn how kilns work, and see one in action! Scouts can also learn what glazes are made from and discuss major glazing techniques such as dipping, pouring, spraying, painting and sponging. Scouts will enjoy getting dirty in the AMOCA Ceramics Studio. We offer the opportunity to work in clay. Your scout will be able to create their very own hand-built pot or sculpture based on their troop level. Click here for more information.
