Teen Clay with Michael Bradford. Teen Clay is open to both beginning and continuing students. Participants are taught individually from their unique skill level and ability. Beginning students learn about clay as a material and basic potter’s wheel skills: for example, speed control, hand/foot coordination, centering clay, and how to make small cylindrical objects. Cylindrical forms are important because they form the basis of so many useful items. Cylinders of different heights and diameters become dishes, cups, vases, and urns. As students develop, projects naturally lead into more complex forms and/or assemblies. For instance, by introducing a handle and spout, a cylindrical form becomes a pitcher. Both technical and artistic considerations are discussed in class. Students are encouraged to keep a notebook to document their designs and to help organize their studio time.  Supplies: Provided by CAW; available in studio.
