Classes are semi-private group classes that are open to beginners. Students benefit from small class sizes of less than eight, getting individual attention and assistance. Do you want to dabble in a new art form or pick up tips from an instructor? Or, are you looking for a short series to further explore an art form? Either way, we have something for you. Come, bring a friend and create at The Art Lab. All materials are provided. Our instructors are professional teaching artists and have all had a national background check completed.
Additional classes will be added for October – June in September. Want to see them first. Please join our (mailing list).
Once Weekly Classes
Much of class time will be on the pottery wheel. Any level of ability is welcome and all supplies are included. Clay can be taken home for hand building as part of the class. Glaze will be available to take home and finish work as desired so as not to take up class time. Special arrangements will be made during class for extra time to come in for glazing as needed. Class size is limited to 5-6 students so we can focus on personal attention. Once the class is full it will be taken off the website. If you would like to secure your post please register and we will be in contact soon. We will have many projects created on the pottery wheel during the 4 weeks of class.
Glass and Clay
Create projects with glass and clay on and off the pottery wheel. We will also combine glass and clay to create beautiful works of art.
