Explore the colors and techniques of watercolor in this six week painting session. Participants will learn the foundations of watercolor paint and how to use them to create the desired outcome. As we progress together in the class, students will build up technique and confidence in their painting skills. We will each create a final piece at the end of the course and celebrate our masterpieces!  

This hand building ceramics class puts a spin on the traditional way of creating functional pottery. Works will be centered around slab built vessels instead of wheel throwing. Participants will be allowed to create and glaze a variety of works ranging from a set of mugs to vases. All kinds of variations in shape, form and texture can be made; the sky is the limit! This direction of ceramics creates an extension of the imagination and no previous experience using clay is necessary. 

Students will make 2 dishes, 1 each week. First dish will be savory, (dinner that night) and 2nd will be a dessert. In the process of mixing they will learn kitchen safety, and how to measure ingredients. While food is baking they will design their own apron or illustrate their recipe pages. 

Wednesday's Oct 3 - Nov 28th 1pm - 4pm . This eight-week session provides students already familiar with making functional forms such as cylinders and bowls that have experience in beginning wheel throwing. Students will continue to hone their skills by learning techniques such as making lidded vessels, adding texture, and furthering their knowledge with clay. Buck has over 30 years of pottery experience to share with students at any level. 

Wednesday's Oct 3rd - Oct 24th,  6pm - 9pm. Instruction will include students’ skills in the areas of general properties of clay, hand building, throwing on the wheel and glazing.  The objective is not make pieces to take home, rather allowing you get your hands dirty and feeling what it's like! Pottery is a very physical and hands on art form that many have yet to fall in love with. (prerequisite for Adult Pottery and ceramics open studio)
