In Mr. Ryan's workshop, your child will be exposed to the wonderful world of ceramics.  What is clay?  What's a glaze, a kiln?  Campers will gain an understanding of what clay is, where it's found, and how we can use it for making things like pottery, sculpture, brick and tile.  Campers will work in a variety of techniques including pinch pottery, coil building, slab building, and tile.  All campers' work will be decorated, fired and glazed in a kiln.  Note:  work will not be ready the same week as workshop due to drying/firing time.
