Back this summer—one day Summer Workshops! Drop off your kiddos with us this Summer so they can create and learn. This year we are introducing our one day 3 hour Wheel Workshops for ages 9-17 Campers will learn the basics of working with a ceramic wheel with our Studio Manager, Aaron Moseley.  With 3 hours of instruction, campers will learn the techniques required to make a bowl using the wheel.  After the class, all participants will select their favorite creation to keep.  Every skill level is welcome!  Projects will be available for pickup 3 weeks after their summer camp.

Summer Youth Art Camps at ICCGS--for ages 8-17!  We have provided art education for over 10 years through our Summer Camp Programs.  For 2020 we have adapted our summer camps to adhere to COVID-19 precautions.  We are excited to offer a variety of one day workshops, July through August.

Age Restrictions: for 2020 summer camps, we are requiring the minimum age to be 8 year for one day workshops and 9 years old for wheel workshops.  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.  Campers will be asked to wear masks and stay within their dedicated work area to help ensure proper social distancing.

Drop Off/Pick Up: Check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance of the  ICCGS STEAM Classroom  (ON THE 11th Avenue SIDE), located inside the Cherry Building across from the NewBo Marketplace. Parents/adults must sign their child in and out of camp every day. 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. For the best creative experience, and for COVID-19 precautions, parents/adults are not allowed in the studio space during class time -- but are welcome to wait in the lobby area until the end of class. Please be sure to observe our COVID-19 precautions by wearing a mask inside the Cherry Building and observing 6 foot distance during pickup and drop off.

COVID-19 precautions: in the studio we are observing all COVID-19 precautions by maintaining distance, limiting the studio to 10 people at a time, providing several hand washing stations and sanitizing all surfaces regularly.  Anyone that enters the studio must wear a mask. All ceramic wheel workshops are on Mondays, when the studio is closed to the public.  All one-day hand building workshops will be held in our dedicated S.T.E.A.M classroom in the Cherry Building. Do not enter the building If your child feels ill or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19.  In that case, please contact us for a programming voucher, or to be transferred to another Camp or Workshop by emailing us at info@iowaceramicscenter.org.  Help us keep everyone safe by observing all COVID-19 precautions.  

What to Wear and Bring: Masks are required in the studio during class, masks are not provided by ICCGS.  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.  Food is prohibited in the studio but water bottles (with secure tops) are allowed.

Cancellation Policy and Transfers: ICCGS reserves the right to cancel sessions due to the minimum enrollment not being met. In that event, participants will be notified by email.  If your camper cannot attend an upcoming camp, you must contact the center 72 hours before the camp begins.  Let us know by sending an email to info@iowaceramicscenter.org or call us at 319-365-9644.  If we receive your request within the 72 hour timeframe, you will be issued a programming voucher.  This voucher can be used for any upcoming class or workshop at the center.  Alternatively we can also transfer you to another camp, if space is available.  

Completed Projects: ICCGS will process and fire all projects in our kilns.  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 know the date of the camp and project type if applicable. 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.

All classes and workshops are held at: Iowa Ceramics Center and Glass Studio, located in the NewBo district in the Cherry Building at 329 10th Avenue Southeast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  The center is located on the first floor in Suite 117.
