Clay Creations

Carson Valley Art Center, Clay Creations

Get Your Hands Dirty
Clay Creations is a unique opportunity to explore a different art medium. Unlike drawing and painting working with clay is a very tactile, hands on experience that for some is very therapeutic. Working in a three-dimensional aspect accesses a different part of the creative process and is very rewarding. For those wishing to learn how to throw a bowl or mug or wanting to get back into the clay world this is for you. In addition to learning about wheel throwing we also offer hand building classes.
