Whether you are new to working with clay or have lots of experience, this eight-week sculpture class gives students an opportunity to develop or refine their handbuilding skills, challenge their creativity, and work intuitively. Learn the basics of slab construction and coil building to create modern art pieces for a home or gallery. Sculptures may be functional or decorative. All skill levels are welcome! Bring a project idea with you or come with no plan at all. Your instructor will guide you through a different project each week.
