Desert Cactus Summer Workshop (8P1W)
August 4, 2021 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$24
Summer Youth Art Camps at ICCGS–for ages 8-15! At ICCGS, we have provided art education for over 10 years through our Summer Camp Programs. For 2021, we are excited to offer a variety of 1-day workshops. In each 2-hour Summer Camp Workshop, campers will create a project using a variety of hand building skills–with help from our Summer Camp Instructors. The campers will then glaze (aka paint) their works to be fired in our kilns. Projects will be available for pickup 3 weeks after their workshop. These camps are a great option for siblings who want to take a class together!
Desert Cactus: Let’s create your own desert oasis by creating a cacti or succulent from clay. We will carve, pinch and work from slabs of clay to create a cactus that won’t poke you. This workshop is for ages 8 to 15.
Date: Wednesday, August 4th
Camp Code: 8P1W
