  • #ClayCafeStudios Out and About at Area Schools

    For many years, #ClayCafeStudios has been teaching after-school art enrichment classes in the local schools. Two schools where we currently teach are Kent Gardens Elementary and Haycock Elementary, both in #FairfaxCounty.

    At Kent Gardens, our current class is Play with Clay. Each week, students make a project by hand-building with clay. The following week, they paint their clay creation.

    Here is one of the fun projects students are painting after sculpting and molding their clay:

    At Haycock, students have been learning various #potterypainting techniques in our Wild and Crazy Pottery class. At the end of the 8-week session, each child will have 8 pieces of pottery to take home and use.
