Adult Coloring Book Style Pottery Painting Workshop
  • Worried about “messing it up?” when it comes to painting pottery? Not a chance in this fun workshop! Tiles arrive already fired with a glazed black coloring book outline that even if painted over, still shines through! Tiles will have a variety of garden themes to choose from! Once fired, tiles are food safe and can be used as spoon rests, coasters, or a simple table decoration.
  • Tiles will be fired and ready for pick up at the Parks office approximately two weeks after the workshop. The Parks Department will notify you when they are ready for pick up.

Budding Artists (5-7 Years)
  • Saturdays, March 16 - 30: We plan to get a little wacky with our art in this budding artists series! Balloons and bubbles become a big theme for us this time around, as we create our own self-portraits with a bubbly twist! We will learn to draw from life with a little help from balloon animals (I bet you didn’t know Ms. Kristin could make a balloon dog, did you?) as well using bubbles and glaze to create interesting patterns on a ceramic tile (to be fired and picked up approximately 2 weeks after class!). You will be will be notified by the Parks Department when they’re ready.
  • Saturdays, May 4 - 18: Have a child that LOVES space AND loves art? This is the perfect class for them! Your child will enjoy both space themed arts and crafts as well as fun space facts during this month’s budding artists series! We will create space jars with glow paint, galaxy themed canvas paintings, polymer clay space critters, and more fun (and potentially messy!) activities! Please have your child dressed in clothing suitable for painting and clay as there is always the potential for staining!

Toddler Art Adventure (18 Months - 4 Years)
  • Thursdays, April 4 - 18: Spring is in the air (hopefully) and we’ve got some springy (and cute!) themed projects planned for you and your little artist! We will create and paint small froggies out of polymer clay, and while our paint dries, we will create lily pads for them to sit on! We will also explore warm and cool colors as we blend them together for some fabulous looking butterflies (or flowers!) We'll also get quite a bit of fine motor skills practice as we make some paper, pipe cleaner, and beaded flowers! Please be mindful if your child is still mouthing objects as the beads may pose a choking hazard. Parent/Guardian must attend with child.

Budding Artists (8-10 Years)
  • Saturdays, January 13-27: Welcome back young artists! This month is all about fun and functional clay! Students will get messy with clay hand building, glaze a piece of pottery (will be clear coated so it is 100% food safe!) and create fun polymer clay keychains. Please note that all kiln fire projects will be ready for pickup approximately 2-3 weeks after the final class. Participants will be notified via email by the Parks office when they are ready.
  • Saturdays, April 6 – 20: This month's budding artist series is themed around all things relating to spring! We will start this series off with creating cute little clay homes fit for a little mouse or tiny critter, paper flower bouquets, and create a beautiful spring themed mixed media painting using colorful crepe paper. Clay houses will be painted with acrylic paint and ready to take home on the last day of class.

Under the Sea Inspired Plate Workshop
Bring the ocean a little closer in this fun ocean themed workshop! We will start off with a slab of clay and a mold to create our plate base, then after viewing some images of ocean animals and plant life, we can hand build and decorate our plate! Bubbles, octopus, coral, we can create it all! After hand building, we will take some time to glaze our plates and final details! Plates will be ready approximately three weeks after the workshop and available for pickup at the Parks office. Registrants will be notified via email when they are ready for pick up at the Parks office. Please note these plates are decorative and meant to be displayed. They are not food safe and should not be placed in a dishwasher. These would make great candy dishes for wrapped treats! A grown up must attend with child.
