Beginning Wheel Throwing

You will learn basic studio knowledge, learn to center clay on the wheel and create cups, bowls, and plates. You will learn the basics of glazing to finish your work.  My teaching methods help you achieve confidence in beginning pottery during your first 6 week session.

Intermediate Wheel Throwing

Intermediate Wheel Throwing for adults is for those who are already comfortable with centering clay on the wheel and making basic forms. In this class we will introduce handles, lids, and modifying wheel thrown forms with additional techniques. I feel you will be challenged but enjoy learning lidded and altered forms as soon as possible. This class still provides an introduction to basic studio knowledge and continued instruction in glazing. This class is usually repeated a few times as students advance. This class offers additional Open Studio hours to practice on your own. $249 for six weeks.

Ceramic Sculpture

Ceramic Sculpture methods include coiling, slabs, geometric and organic forms. The forms may be functional like bowls, platters and cups or vases. Other forms may be purely sculptural. These forms may come from drawings or other research, natural forms you've gathered from nature or found objects you wish to use as inspiration. Whether you are a beginner or intermediate level, sign up for this class to explore the many other ways that you can work with clay. Basic studio knowledge will be covered as well as introduction to colored slips and glazing techniques. This class is usually repeated a few times as students advance.

Children's Classes

Studio Nadeau welcomes our new teacher for children. Hailey loves ceramics and has lots of experience teaching children. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, she moved to Colorado to attend Fort Lewis College where she obtained a degree in Anthropology. She wrote this to introduce herself - 

"I love traveling and the outdoors, but most of all I love creating beautiful and interesting ceramics. I have been involved with art since I was five years old, and I am passionate about being able to learn, share my knowledge, and get others excited about creating art."

For ages 8 - 12 years, children's classes are a lot of fun. Your child can learn basic techniques for working in coils and slabs. Creative projects are given so each child can follow their own intuition for solutions. Careful guidance encourages imagination, self-reliance, problem solving and fun! When possible, children will glaze their own work.   $189.00 for six weeks.
