Young Artist Experience (YAE) Art Club Classes

We offer mindful-based art classes for the elementary age group as well as the middle-high school age group through our Young Artist Experience (YAE) program. YAE Classes are made possible by generous funding from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation. All classes are held at the arts center and are listed below. Due to the size of our classrooms, we respectfully ask that masks be worn during in-person classes unless all participants and the instructor agree otherwise.

In this session, students will explore a variety of handbuilding techniques using a clay extruder and slab roller to create a clay sculpture of their choice!  The first 2-3 weeks will focus on building your sculpture. Create something abstract, create a figure, or an animal. This is a fun and creative class! Depending on the project, the third or fourth week will focus on glazing and underpainting techniques and finishing with any desired embellishments.
