Our 8-day teen summer camp with Kulak Ceramic runs Monday through Thursday from 4 to 6 pm, starting June 10th to September 1st!

In this program, students will be given 5 lbs of porcelain clay to create a standing sculpture while being guided through slab roll and hand-building techniques. Students will learn how to refine sculpts with clay tools and slip. Students will then study perspective by breaking the sculpture into technical drawings using orthographic projection and axonometric line drawings. Students will then build a still-life drawing “studio” out of cardboard and learn about creating dimension with light and shadow by drawing a still-life of their sculpture. Following the still life, students will create a color-mixing guide and use non-toxic underglaze to glaze their sculpture! Work will be ready for pick up one week after camp is over ๐Ÿ—ฟ

Students will spend a total of four days in each studio.

  • Day 1: At Kulak Ceramic, students will learn about clay varieties and applications and use slab rolling techniques to build their sculpture base from porcelain clay.
  • Day 2: At Kulak Ceramic, students will use hand-building techniques to finish the sculpture.
  • Day 3: At Kulak Ceramic, students will be introduced to tools for refining and retouching clay.
  • Day 4:ย At Paint:lab, students will observe a demonstration on creating a sphere using scaled graphite pencils. Following this, they will engage in 90 minutes of individual practice. During this time, they will choose a simple 3D object to draw from provided reference material and construct a cardboard box lighting studio for a brief still-life session. The instructor will provide guidance during the individual practice.
  • Day 5: At Paint:lab, students will create a still life of their sculpt from week one using their lighting box and sculpt with graphite pencils.
  • Day 6: At Paint:lab, students will learn different technical drawing styles and create isometric drawings of their sculptures on watercolor paper.
  • Day 7: At Paint:lab, students will create color charts with acrylic paint. They will then paint in their watercolor sketch from day 7.
  • Day 9: At Kulak Ceramic, students will glaze their sculptures.

Ages 12-16y/o. Camp will be held over two weeks Monday-Thursday 4-6 pm.
