At The Artistic Hand you will find the best teachers possible for your child! 

Clay is a wonderful, tactile medium that many kids have never experienced before.  Its three dimensional nature forces them to think about structure, shapes and forms. Starting at age five, children are offered a variety of six-week courses. Our classes run year-round in Clay (Hand-building or Wheel Throwing), Teen Art Wednesday, Painting & Drawing.

There is something very magical about children when they are thinking and working creatively. Once children learn to express and execute their personal visions in clay, they can become empowered in ways that go far beyond the walls of the ceramic studio or classroom! 

We believe that children should not be limited in finding their potential.  When they are open to new ideas and experiences, they can create ANYTHING in their lives!

In Clay Classes your child can learn work with clay in two ways (be sure you child wears clothes you're not afraid they will get dirty, because we're going to have lots of fun playing in the mud!):

Throwing on the Potter's Wheel--to make bowls, cups, and more on the potter's wheel (as pictured above).

Hand building--by building bowls, cups, and other sculptural forms by hand, your child will use their hands, imagination, and a variety of tools (as pictured below).

In our Teen Art Wednesday courses we introduce different methods and materials each week in projects that encourage teens to express themselves, to make independent choices and evaluations of their work, and to approach their art-making with a sense of fun and appreciation.

Our Painting and Drawing classes are designed exclusively as an organic playground for effective child behavioral as well as social development of the youth, partially through drawing and painting. Enhance your child's creativity with Pencil drawing, pastels, Crayons, Posters, watercolors and Acrylic. Children are encouraged to excel beyond their full potential and to develop new skills within themselves. This is because the creative and spontaneous genius lies in every kid waiting to shine. 

Special sessions of the Summer Mini Camps are intended to enhance learning, and foster independence and creative thinking in the young artist. Each session involves enrichment activities in both 2D (painting and drawing) and 3D (multimedia and sculpture). They are only held the the week of June 21-July 24 for 6 weeks.
