Test the “clay waters” in this workshop exploring the medium with resident artist Kass O’Brien.
This workshop is suited for beginners to clay, or those with some experience looking for a two-hour refresh. No experience necessary!
Teens will be exploring clay with a lesson in hand-building and creating a plate or bowl on a potter’s wheel. Basic clay fundamentals will be covered, and each student will have a completed piece(s) to pick up at a later date.
Intro to Clay for Teens is best for students ages 13 – 17.
All materials will be provided. This workshop is limited to 10 students.
About the artist:
Kass O’Brien grew up in Pennsylvania, spending much of her childhood fishing and sailing on Lake Erie. Kass’s mother was a docent at a nearby art museum, which sparked her curiosity for art. She became active in the art community as a teenager, and later went on to receive a BFA at the Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her style focused on urban decay, inspired by steel mills along the Great Lakes.
When she moved to Florida, Kass became inspired by the local scenery and began considering different mediums, like ceramics, to express her love of nature. Whether it is seaweed that has washed ashore or a leaf that has fallen from a tree, she tries to transfer these moments into each piece that she creates.
