For Spring 2021, the Center for Arts & Crafts will be offering a variety of in-person art classes and workshops, Take & Make projects, Art Activity Boxes, as well as Create at Home ideas! Program variety is limited due to COVID-19 protocols.

Wheel Thrown Pottery Classes
Due to COVID-19, wheel thrown pottery classes will not be offered during spring 2021.
Learn the techniques of wedging, centering, pulling, shaping, and glazing while working on a pottery wheel.
The class price includes 12.5 pounds of clay, glazes, and kiln firing. A $12.00 fee for a new pottery tool kit is required.
Ceramics Studio Memberships
Spring 2021 Studio Memberships are TBD.
Studio memberships are designed for the more experienced potter. If you have wheel thrown pottery experience, consider purchasing one of our memberships for the semester.
Create at Home
Throughout summer 2020, we released several Create at Home art project catalogs! Learn about a few famous artists, styles and various techniques for inspiration to create art at home! Because we cannot all get together to share in art and creativity in person, here are activities we designed keeping in mind those art materials you may already have on hand or items you may be recycling. Go ahead and substitute any supplies based on what you have.
We are excited to see what you create so please share your artwork with us! If you create any of the projects found in the Create at Home catalogs (or your own art) you can share images with us via email@example.com or on our Facebook page.
