AOP Summer Art Camps – Pottery Camp #1 FULL
July 12 @ 9:00 am - July 16 @ 12:30 pm EDT
During Pottery Camp, students will learn hand-building fundamentals, firing processes and the creative process for making clay pottery. Each little artist will create pinch pots, coil pots, mugs, and other exciting clay masterpieces!
Instructor: Heather Summers is a graduate of East Carolina University with a BFA in Ceramics and Art Education 2016. She has worked Summer camps throughout NC for years and absolutely loves every second of them. She grew up at the beach and loves the outdoors, fishing and kayaking.
Heather is a brand-new Mama and will be introducing her new baby boy, Jakob, to many AOP participants this year. She loves every type of art imaginable, but definitely has an extra passion for pottery/clay. She lives with Jakob and her husband, Logan, in Washington, just a short way from our theater. She has been the art teacher at Chocowinity Middle School for the last 5 years and cannot wait to share her love of teaching and love of the arts here with us!
