Philosophy:
I believe that everyone is an artist and that to truly embrace our individual talents, we just need to practice!
My goal is to provide a safe and encouraging space for children to find and express the creativity within them.
I provide structure, concepts, and rules of the medium and then see what each individual comes up with. The varied responses are always exciting! I tell all of my students, “There is no ‘wrong’ in art!”

JM Pottery and Art offers Home School classes, Girl Scout/Boy Scout Badges and Birthday Parties!

Home School Classes:

We can tailor plan an art class to go along with just about any subject you may be studying!

For Example:  Studying Native Americans? We can do a workshop on Totem Poles.  We can discuss the history, meaning, and mechanics of totem poles.  Then we can create our own totem in clay!

Girl Scout/ Boy Scout Badges:

Fulfill the requirements of a Pottery badge!

This group of girls came out and did a two part workshop in clay and earned their badge.  We talked about the whole process of working in clay, from the wet creation to the bisque firing, decorating techniques and final firing.  We learned basic construction and created beautiful items to take home and enjoy.
