ONE-DAY AND FAMILY WORKSHOPS
One-day workshops for youth and adults engage participants in a specific media or process, and encourage artistic development and self-expression.
Work together in a collaborative art-making experience! Multi-generational workshops are a wonderful way for families to spend quality and creative time together. Children—along with a favorite grownup!—explore art and nature, develop a meaningful bond and create memories to last a lifetime.
The registration fee for Family Workshops includes one adult with one child; children must be accompanied by an adult. All ages programs are listed at a per person rate.
FAMILY WHEEL THROWING
Learn the basics of wheel throwing as a team! Work beside a family member to each create one wheel-thrown piece following an instructor demonstration. Add hand-built embellishments, add glazes and decorate to complete your works of art. *Please note that children under the age 7 cannot use the wheel independently and must share the wheel with and adult.
