Finding Your Spirit Animal Clay Camp Ages 8-14

Paige Janeri

August 12-16, 2-5pm

We can learn a lot from nature when we observe animals in the wild. We can see their characteristics of strengths and weaknesses. In this week of camp, we will dig into some clay and explore our spirit animals; determining how they uniquely relate to us. No experience or prior knowledge of clay is necessary to enjoy creating hand-built wall hanging tiles and sculptures of our spirit animals. Sculpture techniques will be taught in this camp and kids will gain a deeper understanding of themselves, animals, and ceramic art.
