Clay Days with Sonja: Teens Week-Long Workshop
Mon 8/6/2012 at 1:00 PM -- Fri 8/10/2012 at 4:00 PM
TechShop Mid-Peninsula

Let your teenager's artistic and creative energies loose themselves at TechShop!

In this first of the "TechShop Teens" series of workshops, your 13- to 18-year-old will come to TechShop Menlo Park to learn clay modeling techniques with Sonja, our sculpture expert and all around highly talented artist!

This week-long, 3-hour workshop runs from Monday through Friday and is an UNACCOMPANIED event wherein you (the parent or guardian) do not need to be present during class. (You may, of course, remain on site if you wish.)

Workshop participants will learn many techniques of the Art of Clay, including:

       Clay Modeling

       Clay Sculpting

       Clay Coiling

       Clay Glazing

       Clay Firing

In addition to the primary focus on clay, participants will also learn how to use silk screening techniques to apply art directly onto a T-shirt they will bring home at the end of the week.

Note: Each participant is expected to behave respectfully and follow the rules. TechShop is a fun place, but it is a functioning shop with equipment, machinery, tools and adults, all working and whirring during your child's time here. For this reason, if at ANY time your child acts in an unsafe manner, or is disrespectful or disruptive to the instructor, other kids, members or staff, we reserve the right to remove him or her to a safe area away from the workshop area. If this happens, you will be obligated to remove your child from TechShop immediately.
