When I taught full time - weekends and summers were my own. Now as a freelance artist and educator my schedule is quite the opposite. I teach a two week intensive Ceramics camp every summer - two sessions in fact. There is wheel throwing, sculpting, hi fire reduction and more for the "teens" ( the 10 and up crowd). For the little ones ( ages 6-9) there is a variety of hand building - both sculptural and functional pieces. Whatever I dream up for any given summer... Currently in week 2 - glazing week, I though I would show you what we had been up too...
Freshly cut from the wheel...
Symetry and asymetry are equally welcomed. Recycle in the back.
Emma is my oldest student this year, and she has graduated to porcelain. She is loving it!
Trimmed, carved, embellished... drying now.
All of those pots - 8 students, 4 days. (Class is 1.5 hrs each day.) I am pleased!
