Young Artist Academy with Nellie Shevelkina
Building skills in the visual arts is like learning to play a musical instrument or sport — you practice and challenge yourself with new techniques and ideas. This class is offered continuously during the year, allowing students to develop skills progressively in visual literacy, perception, and creativity. Young artists learn to enjoy, understand, and create visual art through immersion in drawing, painting, mixed media, sculpture, and art history — with lots of fun discoveries. Through creative hands-on exercises, learning from different artists, and trying various materials and media, students will develop and hone their creativity, eye and hand coordination, tone and color recognition, and understanding of volume and proportion. Students will work independently or as a group according to their age, level of experience, personal interest, and individual artistic style. Small class size (no more than six students) allows each student to receive significant individual attention.

Notes: To allow more practice time, students may enroll in both Young Artist Academy sections.

Section A - Tuesdays, 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm, 3/13 – 6/5,  13 sessions
Section B - 
Saturdays, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm, 3/17 – 6/9,  No class 5/26,  12 session

Afternoon Clay for Young Artists with Michael Bradford
Enjoy a varied experience in stoneware, using both hand-building techniques and the potter’s wheel. Each student is taught individually according to his or her experience level — from first-time to advanced. We begin with the foundational skills needed to create basic ceramic objects, such as cups, bowls, and floral containers. As students refine these skills, they work on more complex projects that enable them to combine techniques and push their own creativity and problem-solving abilities. We will also explore glazing and other surface treatments. This class is also open to adults. Supplies: Wear clothing that can come into contact with clay. A half-apron is often useful. Notes: Students may purchase an additional three hours of practice time per week. Our practice schedule can be viewed at www.cawstudiopotters.wordpress.com.
