    Starting from scratch, the beginner will learn the essentials on the wheel. We will begin by centering the clay on the wheel and making a bowl. Building on that success, we will progress to mugs and vases where we will have the opportunity to attach handles. Proficient students will have time to make a plate, and/or explore different ways to decorate and alter your thrown forms and express your unique style. The focus of this class is to take the student from where they are, with little or no experience, and foster the skills and confidence to incorporate wheel throwing pottery into their artistic expression.

    You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Please bring a pack of sketch artistic tiles, an 11x14 mixed media pad, B, B3, B4 pencils and 005, 01 and o8 black markers. All are available at area art & craft stores.
