Ceramics

Clay artist Brandon Lutterman will teach our ceramic workshops this year.  In these workshops we will explore handbuilding techniques in clay, allowing young artists to use their imagination while being guided by the LMU ceramics faculty and assistant. After the creation of the work, the young artists will be taught to apply colored slip to their work, followed by a clear glaze. The work will be once fired and available for pick up on the 17th of July. The time to pick up the child’s artwork will be announced during the final day of class. Please be advised that parent participation is also greatly appreciated.
