Kids can make, glaze and fire their very own earthenware clay in two, six-week afterschool workshops beginning in August at Volcano Art Center.

Two sessions are scheduled: ages 9 to 12 on Tuesdays starts Aug. 9; ages 6 to 9 on Wednesdays starting Aug. 10. Both are scheduled from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

These simple clay forms turn into possibilities for discovery of shape, texture and color. The kids will roll, squeeze, twirl and pull easy-to-sculpt clay into fun and imaginative clay projects.

Instructor Lisa Louise Adams will demonstrate engineering techniques that are important in working and firing clay successfully.

Kids will get to experience the tactile nature of clay and how it accepts textures. They’ll also develop imagination and motor skills.

VAC would like to add a special “mahalo” to the potters who participated in the Eighth Annual Volcano Pottery Sale, and donated funds to keep the cost of the workshops affordable.

The VAC’s Niualani Campus is located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Road in Volcano Village.
