GLAZED AND AMAZED
Rising 6th-8th graders
July 11-15 • $125

Campers will enjoy learning how to make bowls and other ceramic pieces using pinch, roll, and other hand-building techniques. Young potters will learn to glaze and fire their work and will take home their works of art to provide lasting memories.

Please note: since the pottery won’t be done in time for campers to take home at the end of camp, parents and campers are invited to attend a Student Art Show on Thursday, July 28 from 5 to 6 p.m.

CREATIVE HANDS

Campers will enjoy learning how to make fun, creative creatures and other ceramic pieces using pinch, roll, and other hand building techniques. Pieces will come to life as young potters learn to glaze and fire their work. Campers will take home their works of art to provide lasting memories.

Please note: since the pottery won’t be done in time for campers to take home at the end of camp, parents and campers are invited to attend a Student Art Show on Thursday, July 28 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Campers will apply what they learned by playing rubber band cannon battleship and rubber band cannon golf! Other activities include: paper airplanes, physics of music, slime and polymers, gross-ology, magnets, crystal formation, engines, gravity, and more.
