Ceramics for Kids starts October 12!
Starting October 12, instructors Hannah May and Logan Hunter will be teaching “Ceramics for Kids” at the Arkansas Craft School on Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 12:00 noon. This class is available to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Students will learn pinch, coil, and slab techniques used in making hand-built ceramic work, with the possibility of some wheel-work as well. They will complete projects in clay that will be glazed, fired, and ideally functional for use. While work is drying and being fired, students will complete crafts with a drawing emphasis including Christmas cards and prints. Tuition for the nine-session class is $165.00, and students must pre-register. There will be no classes held Saturday, November 30, or Saturday, December 7. The final day for classes will be December 21, 2013
Instructor Hannah May has taught ceramics to children in Stuttgart at an after school program and summer art camps for 4 years. She has a BA in studio art with an emphasis in ceramics from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2012. She makes functional pottery that is inspired by tea culture & the vessels used for tea rituals around the world. Logan Hunter obtained a BA in studio art with an emphasis in drawing from UALR where he also completed courses in ceramics and built the campus’s only wood fired kiln. He teaches adult drawing classes at the Arkansas Art Center in Little Rock and children’s art classes at the Art Center of the Grand Prairie in Stuttgart. He works in both drawing and in pottery and combines the two by carving images into pots and using black stain to create drawings on forms.
