What a great way to end the school day! Sculpt bugs in the woods, sea creatures by the beach or crazy 3-D movie characters & Pokémon who come into Wilton. Or, roll out coils for roller coasters or delicious summer treats. Then create Mother’s & Father’s Day gifts which your parents will proudly display! ClayPlayers create a new project every week and love making whatever they want for their last class project!

Students experiment with different clay forms (pinch pots, coil, slabs & tiles), design and patterning, red & white clays, rainbow color & bursting crystal glazes, and decorative materials (feathers, beads, ribbon, wire, pipe cleaners). Students will learn how to mix glaze colors to create other colors, and see how crystal, crackle and textured glazes change the look of their creation after fired in a hot kiln. All clay and glazes used are non-toxic, and firings are done off-site in a kiln.

Working with clay is a lot of fun... but also very beneficial to children! *They learn: Dexterity (using their hands/fingers as tools), visual awareness (hand/eye coordination), how to explore their curiosity, shapes and how they relate to each other, math skills and measuring, how to work with others and take pride in accomplishment!
