What Happens in Ceramics Class
St Jude’s Ceramic Classes provide students with the experience of how to work with clay to create their own works of art. In the class they use various methods of sculpting with clay, application of glaze, different sculpting techniques and how to create a ceramic piece from start to finish. This class is creative and fun.
The classes she offers at St Jude School are offering students a creative, positive, supportive environment. Children need no prior art experience, just an open mind and heart. They’ll learn all techniques of hand-building, and gain confidence to work with clay and glazing without judgment.
Children create various functional pieces – some nature inspired, as well as using Holidays as the inspiration, starting with Halloween – ending with Easter.
