Wednesday After School Enrichment Programming

September 30, 2020 at 4:15 pm - 5:30 pm


Ceramic Art Workshop Series:  START After School Enrichment Programming

Drop off the kids on Wednesdays from 4:15-5:30pm for our after school enrichment programming. Every week there will be a different projects utilizing clay techniques, our instructors will discuss the history and use of various techniques while allowing each student to be creative in their own way.  This is a series of after school workshops. Take them often for a comprehensive ceramic experience—or just take one or two for a great stand-alone art experience. In each workshop, students will create a project and glaze/paint them. We will then fire them in our kilns, to be ready for picked up 3 weeks after the workshop. A dedicated classroom will be used for every Wednesday workshop.  Masks are mandatory and social distancing is enforced.  These workshops are recommended for ages 7-16.

These classes are for ages 7+, all students must be able to tolerate wearing a mask for the duration of the workshop. All students will be seated to be socially distanced. Parents/Guardians may drop off their kids no more than 10 minutes before class begins, and pick them up at 5:30pm.

Age Restrictions: We structure our camps by age in order to target our camper’s ability levels for each class. When their camp begins, children must be the minimum age requirement for their camp. In order to ensure the success and enjoyment of our Summer Camp classes, please observe these restrictions when registering. Please check our updated COVID policies located on our website for any questions regarding our safety procedures—the safety of our campers, staff and studio members is paramount to ICCGS. 

Drop Off/Pick Up: for all 2/3/5 day summer camps, check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance to iCCGS, located inside the Cherry Building across from the NewBo Marketplace. Parents/adults must sign their child in and out of camp every day. For all 1-day workshops, check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance of the ICCGS STEAM Classroom (ON THE 11th Avenue SIDE), Please be punctual with all drop-offs and pick-ups. Sign-in begins no more than 5 minutes before the start of camp. Unless previously arranged, campers will not be released until the end of class.

At the time of your summer camp, please adhere to all posted information regarding COVID precautions and wearing masks inside the building. 

What to Wear and Bring: Masks in the studio are mandatory.  Clay may be messy, so make sure your child wears appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes. Please make sure your child is wearing clothing that can be easily laundered. For glass workshops (Studio Experience) closed-toed shoes and covered thighs are REQUIRED for safety. Food is prohibited in the studio but water bottles (with secure tops) are allowed.

A $15 processing fee is required to transfer from one camp to another, if space is available 7 days prior to the start of camp. No refunds or transfers will be allowed with less than 7 days notice.

Completed Projects: Student’s work will be available for pickup exactly three weeks after the end of their session; we will NOT call or email you when items are ready for pickup. All summer camp projects left in the studio after September 5th will be recycled.

Please note: when you pick up your child’s items, be sure to have the camp code with you (i.e. 1LA). Every child will have their own brown bag labeled with their camp code and first name. Having the camp code with you is necessary to correctly locate your child’s items.
