2016 Summer Pottery Camp Schedule!!!!

A lot has been happening with JM Pottery and Art over the past year or more!  I have begun doing more production pottery and am now displaying my work at The Artisan Galleries at Massanutten, just inside the guard gates at Massanutten Resort.  This means that I am working at the Galleries about once a week.  Because of this shift, I have decided to focus on my primary art medium this summer…CLAY!  At this time, I have three camps scheduled for this summer.   One of those camps will be focused on the younger artist and will be primarily focused on hand-building.  The other two camps will be focused on the older student and will incorporate both hand-building and work on the Potters Wheel. If there is enough interest, I am open to adding a fourth camp for the younger students.

My teaching philosophy is to provide students with materials, information and ideas so as to best inspire them to create from their imaginations.  My hope is that the work that your child produces represents the very best of their individual creativity.

Young Potters Camp

(ages 5-9) $100

This camp is for all experience levels.  We will work on a wide variety of hand built pottery projects, designed with the student’s interests in mind.  Students will work with pinch pots, slabs, coils etc.  (8 camper limit)

July 11-14, 2016 (9:30-11:30) July 20 glaze day (time tba)

 If you are unable to make the glaze day, please arrange in advance with me for a time that will work.  I try to be flexible, but my time is precious.

(8 camper limit per week)

If you are interested in doing smaller workshops, I am happy to schedule shorter/smaller/more focused classes for any age group!  Want to do a ladies morning/afternoon/night out?  I LOVE doing those!  Prices will vary depending on the number of students/length of class/project that you are interested in.  Call me at (540)246-1182 to arrange for your group.
