Pottery for ALL (Mondays, 4:00-6:00PM)
Looking for a fun art activity as a family or group of friends? This class is a great opportunity to work with clay at your own level but along side your favorite people. Share the good times this winter, spring or fall (summer by appointment). Create original pieces of pottery or sculpture using red, white or brown clay. We will fire it for you and if you want to glaze, you can come back for a relaxing painting session with our large selection of glazes requiring another firing. All materials are included and experienced instruction as needed. Shaping clay is therapeutic whether is be by hand or thrown on the wheel!



Adult Open Pottery Class (Tuesdays, 12:00-2:00PM or Thursdays, 6:00-8:00PM) 
Open to all ranges of experience, this pottery class gives students the opportunity to make whatever they want. The instructor will help students create and advance their skills in both wheel throwing and hand building. Come with ideas of your own or the instructor will give you project ideas at your skill level.


Youth Ceramics
 (Wednesdays, 4:00-6:00PM)
Youth Ceramics will receive instruction in basic slab, coil and pinch methods of hand building. Students are encouraged to express their creative ideas. Enjoy the small group interaction while making projects in a studio environment. (Wear a big art T-shirt that can get messy)

Beginner
Pottery (Saturdays, 5:00-7:00pm) ages 13+
Experience the restorative power of clay in this course designed to enhance well-being while learning basic pottery techniques that will serve as the foundation for your pottery practice. The tactile experience of pottery is inherently meditative. Your heart rate and blood pressure lower, your breathing regulates, and your stress level naturally subsides as you immerse yourself in this primal art form. With a focus on process, this class can soothe the psyche and provide a much needed emotional reprieve.  (Families with younger children may sign-up by calling the DARC Office)
