Kids’ Summer Camp: “Around the Ancient World”

July 30th- August 3rd:   10am- 3pm.

Kids ages 6-12 will spend five days learning, playing and creating in Clay on Main’s ceramics studio with instructors Liz, Ray, and Jasmine!  Each of the first four days will focus on ancient times in a different part of the world: Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.  Using techniques and materials from each, we’ll create a ceramic vessel or sculpture; we’ll also explore other crafts, music, and food.  The fifth day will be our chance to have an informal reception and share our work with family and friends.  While expressing themselves creatively and getting to know one another, campers will learn a bit of geography, history, chemistry, and geology.  Physical activity is sure to be part of each day, whether we go for a walk on a sunny day, or play active indoor games.

$300 per child ($275 for each sibling).  Clay on Main will provide snacks, but please pack a lunch.

One Of A Kind Monoprints

Printmaking is a wonderful way to explore texture and bold graphic markmaking.  Monoprinting inspires an especially immediate, fresh approach, as each print is completely unique.  JoAnn will show you how to make monoprints for greeting cards, to display, or to use in your collage and art work. We’ll be working with acrylic paints and gelatin plates. We’ll learn how to create texture, pattern and interest in the prints using everything from stamps to things you find around the house or in nature.  (Hint- Mother’s Day is coming up! )

Saturday 6/16/18 10am to 12, $40 plus materials fee.

Working with fused glass is easy and rewarding.  Max Rhoads will lead you through a simple, intuitive process that is accessible to ages 4 and above and all skill levels.  Clay on Main will fire your ornaments into a colorful, translucent pendant or broach, to be picked up later.  This workshop is perfect for creating gifts, or for just spending some quality time with a loved one. 🙂
