Summer Camp Membership for Adults May 31, 2016 14:38

NEW for this SUMMER 2016

Because summer schedules are often complicated, many people can't take a regular class in the summer, so we are offering Summer Camp Memberships for Open Studio time and Workshops. City Clay students who have had at least two regular classes with us or those who are qualified potters or sculptors are eligible for Summer Camp. You can work during our daytime hours, seven days a week, and Monday through Thursday nights. You can even plan time to work together with your previous classmates. 

WORKSHOPS—are available for anyone, but if you are a summer Camp member you will receive discount on each one you take.

Having a flexible studio schedule can be a big help but the most exciting part of camp is immersing your-self in a workshop. A two or three day workshop is the equivalent of a regular class, but with more focus and fewer interruptions. You will be there to catch your pot or sculpture at just the right moment to trim, attach a handle, carve, or decorate. You will be able to get lost in thought as you detach from your regular responsibilities, and focus on your ideas with abandon. This may sound exhausting for some, but most people find it exhilarating. 

Dates: Summer Camp Membership dates—July 5-August 29

Cost: Camp $200.00 for two months, plus a $40.00 discount for each workshop you take.  

Cost: Camp without a workshop,  $240.00 for two months 

Registration:  Please call or stop by to register for camp membership
