Upcoming Events (More Events)
Get your hands dirty and make beautiful things! Start with centering clay and pulling cylinders, the building blocks to throwing on the wheel. Move on to forming bowls, mugs, vases and plates, and learn handle-pulling, glazing and finishing techniques. Open to beginners as well as those with experience who would like to improve their skills.
Learn the fundamentals of woodworking equipment while creating a tool carrier. Leave class with knowledge of proper machinery use, and, most importantly, woodshop safety. Students may purchase the toolbox for $6 after class or we will use them for our Art Mart fundraiser. The orientation is required in order to use the woodshop on your own.
Create a small panel using an array of beautifully colored glass. Learn how to handle glass, choose colors and textures, fit glass to patterns, cut, grind, foil and solder. Enhanced by daylight, your piece will change based on the weather, season and time of day.
Learn the basics needed to make music on the ever-popular ukulele. It's like a guitar, only a whole lot easier! You will learn to tune your instrument and make basic chords plus how to accompany yourself or others using basic chord charts and song sheets, all in a fun and inclusive setting.
For the beginner who needs help moving beyond basic strumming and open chords (ex: C, G, Am, F...). Classes will focus on improving chord changes, chords and playing techniques. Classes will be tailored to the students' skill level.
Learn to create colorful glass beads by heating and shaping glass with a torch - yes, we get to work with fire! Build your skills with step-by-step instruction, and see how the quality of your beads evolves. Use your vibrant pretties in your next jewelry project, or display them as tiny works of art.
