Clay Explorers - Grades K-1
This exciting, hands-on class introduces our youngest artists to the wonderful medium of clay. Students will learn a variety of hand-building techniques, such as pinch pots, slab building and coil projects. While new students will receive directed projects, returning students are encouraged to experiment as their skills evolve. All supplies provided.
Laura first began studying ceramics as a child at the Fine Arts Association in Willoughby. Later, as a student at the Cleveland Institute of Art, she quickly rediscovered her love of clay. She earned her BFA in ceramics in 2000, and has been teaching ceramics, as well as other media, to children and adults throughout the greater Cleveland area ever since.In 2012, Laura earned a master’s degree in occupational therapy, and is always looking for ways to combine her skill sets to help those with physical limitations to pursue their artistic interests.
