spend much of their time exploring on the wheel. Time on the pottery this week is about process more than the
final project. Learn to feel what centered clay feels like when it isn’t wobbly. Learn about making a well and how to
open our bowls with our fingers as tools. Projects from each day will be glazed and fired.

Get your hands into wheel throwing! Campers of all skill levels welcome. The camp will cover wedging, centering,
pulling, trimming, use of tools and surface techniques. Campers should wear old clothes because work on the potter's
wheel can get messy (wah-hoo!). If you have taken this camp with Ms. Gretchen...come back and get on the wheel
again and practice! The wheel is like life...it is not about the destination, but the journey. Please remember that
finished work will need to dry and then go through the firing process. Allow 10 days from the last day of camp for
picking up work, thank you.

Day 1 Campers will learn the history of the potter's wheel and why it was used. Learn to recognize when clay is centered.
Day 2 Campers will continue the journey on the wheel making a summer time snack bowl.
Day 3 Don't flip out, flip over! Today campers will learn the techniques to trim the bottoms of their bowls. 
Day 4 Up, up and away. Campers learn how to pull clay on the wheel to achieve height from their work.
Day 5 Getting to know glaze. Learn about glaze and have a painting party on our last day of camp.

Discover new ways of making art by combining scientific processes with art mediums!

Day 1 Designing And Building From Templates :: tessellations: how to ‘fit in".
A tessellation is a pattern of shapes that fit together, like a puzzle, with no gaps. Students
 will learn the simple formula for making their own pattern templates and use them to create a set of
puzzle tiles with clay, adding their unique touches and glazes.
Day 2 Natural Dyes and Chromatography :: learn the science of chromatography, the process of
separating color pigments. We will also explore natural food dyes.
Day 3 Cohesion/Adhesion + Resistance/Diffusion :: how do materials relate to each other?
We will be playing with adhesion, cohesion, diffusion, dissolution and surface tension. There will
be several stations for creating colorful surfaces, after which we will create art from our results.
Day 4 Surface Tension At Work :: suminagashi (Japanese ink floating). Suminagashi, which translates to
floating black ink, is the ancient meditative Japanese practice of gently floating pigments on the surface of
water with a brush and then capturing the mono print image on an absorbent paper.
