Classes interrupted by COVID-19 health concerns will tentatively resume June 1st.
The schedule for upcoming terms will be posted soon.

Children can choose from a variety of art experiences at the Artistic Hand Studio including painting, drawing, and clay. In addition to developing techniques, our instructors emphasize the importance of thinking outside the box. We recognize that art can promote a good self image when kids are in a creative and supportive environment.

Throwing on the Pottery Wheel

During each one-hour class, children will learn the steps of “throwing” on the pottery wheel. Students will have the opportunity to make multiple pots on the wheel. They will also finish their pieces by trimming, decorating, and glazing them. Our teachers will help with the most challenging aspects of wheel throwing, while new ideas and creativity are encouraged. This is a structured, skill-building class, and good behavior is required! We only have a certain number of pottery wheels so class space is limited.
