Clay for Kids (Oct)

Ages: 5–12

Four-day exploration of hand building techniques and glazing for beginners and youth, with stress placed on sketching ideas out and learning techniques. In week one, students will learn about clay, getting a feel for the medium and making a functional piece. Week two, the coil method will be taught, and in week three slab building. Students will glaze their work in the final class. The created works will be available for pick up at the Clay Studio within two weeks of the final class.

A discount of 25% off the tuition for additional children in the same family will be applied to Youth Classes if registration is received at least one month prior to class start date.

scholarships & aid

FAVA reviews and considers all application for scholarship assistance. While we may not be able to provide a complete scholarship to all those who request it, we are committed to making our classes available to as many people as possible – regardless of individual financial circumstances. For this reason, it is important that all scholarship requests are received well in advance of the class starting date, so we may allocate our available funds accordingly. We may consider any of the following factors when determining eligibility for scholarships:

  • Annual family income
  • Individual or special circumstances
  • Whether the applicant qualifies for the National Free/Reduced Price School Lunch program
    (for students age 18 & younger)

**FAVA also encourages applicants to consider partial scholarship assistance, in which case the student only pays some portion of the class tuition.

All information will be kept confidential and will be used solely to determine the amount of scholarship assistance to be provided.
