At Vivo Art Stdio pottery making is fun! Pottery art is enhances kids creativity, focus and fine-motor skills development. It allows children to explore and experience working with clay as a material. Most children enjoys squishing, squelching, pinching, rolling, poking and pounding the clay.
Work on a Pottery Wheel
With pottery, your hands become your creative outlet and the stress relief. Believe it or not, it’s also a good physical workout as you use your arm muscles to “wedge” the clay (to get air bubbles out), and your core muscles to remain steady, especially when trying to center clay on the wheel.
Pottery & Sculpture Tools
During our classes we use a combination of plastic and wooden clay tools. Our students will experience working with a manual pottery wheel only.
Parents: Please note that we use air dry clay. This particular clay doesn’t require a kiln and it dries in approximately 24 – 48 hours depending on the clay thickness.
We use acrylic paints to color our final art creations.
Messy Hands – Happy Hands!
Dear parents, please note that your child will not be bringing a finished art creation back home after every class. Pottery, clay and sculpture art requires a certain time, skill and process for completion. Children will be learning how to work with clay to sculpt different forms such as ornaments, plates, masks, etc.
We want your child to be creative and to experience different types of art media during our lessons. We include pencil sketching in our pottery, clay and sculpture classes.
We teach in English, Spanish and Russian
Pottery painting is fun! Once our pottery art is dried it’s time to paint it. Acrylic paint is perfect for an air-dry type of clay. We use different type of acrylic paint plus varnish and glitter materials to make our art colorful.
