 After the wonderful results of the previous class and by popular demand this class is offered again.

 Some of the loveliest vessels are often the vessels that are uniquely shaped by hand especially when Mike Swiderski , your instructor, carefully, patiently and methodically directs you into making your own vessel. 

Participants will use the hand building method to bring this delightful cup alive.

Bees are part of the design and you can put as many as you want.

You will have fun in using texture, and glazes to decorate your creation and make it your very own.

Don't forget to register for your glazing time where you will have the opportunity to learn how to dip you vessel into glazes the way the potters do or paint your glaze with sroke and coat glazes for a more detailed look.

Can you see  yourself on the patio this coming spring sipping your coffee in your very own made cup!

For the safety of everyone we recommend social distancing and masks are required. we can only accommodate a maximum of 10 people for the class, so register soon!

A waiting list will be available.

We believe that children learn best through the process of discovery and exploration!

The active learning, or “hands-on” approach, is developmentally appropriate for all children regardless of their age.

Each camp will consist of hours of fun art discovery mixed with outdoor activities and lunch. 

Children will have the opportunity to discover an array of mediums ( see below) that they normally would not have access to in a school environment. 

Eache day, the young artists will experience 2 new mediums, eat, play and exercices.

Our instructors and volunteers are dedicated to make each camp, a memorable time for the children!

Children are expected to  bring a packed lunch and drinks as it is important that they remain hydrated throughout the camps.

Should you have any question you can email: 

or call the Mansfield Art center @ 419.756.17.00
