Send Your Kids to an Art Camp Where They Can Play in the Mud!

Cahaba Clay Works and Earthborn Studios are offering a kid's art camp (ages 8-12) everyday from 10 am to Noon during the weeks of June 7-11 and July 12-16.

Each child will bring home five finished creations by the end of the week. The camp is only $125 per child. ($25 discount for siblings).

They will be able to have an amazing artistic and fun experience, including:

*Learning how to throw a pot, glaze and bring home their fired piece at the end of the week.

*Making a folk art wall hanging with acrylic paints -learn about what makes a folk artist different and what they typically paint.

*Creating a tile relief out of clay. Ready to hang on the wall by the end of the week.

*Throwing a mug they can drink out of. Add a funny face to it and laugh while drinking your hot chocolate.

*Sketching with pencil and paper their self portrait.

Enrollment is limited - call 205-702-7055.

There will also be plenty of artisan pottery for mom to look through at discounted prices. DSCF3149

I would love for my kids to take this class! I need to find a friend on that side of town to stay with all week. Will you siggest to Tena maybe a extended day class for kids this summer. That would be easier. And I could bring a group of kids that would love it!
