Mom, Me & Mud Mondays
A Perfect activity for artists ages 2 to 5 to be shared with their mom or dad!
What a great way to start the week. Each session we will explore the possibilities and messiness of clay! We will build, roll, stamp, coil and PLAY with this amazing material to have fun and create masterpieces together. On the 4th and 8th classes of the session, artists will be able to hand-glaze their work and return a week later to pick up their amazing works of art!
Does not need to be consecutive, although program works best if you try to come weekly.

Classes begin June 4th
4-pack sessions $120
8-pack sessions $200
Drop Ins Available $35 (staff will glaze creation for you)
