Outdoor Clay Camp

Clay Studio is thrilled to offer Outdoor Clay Camp this summer!

Clay is the perfect artistic vehicle for children to explore the elements and foundations of art and design. These elements include color, line, shape, form, texture, space, and value. 

Highly trained art instructors with years of teaching children within the Santa Barbara community will share their insight and knowledge around art, design, and the importance of environmental respect. A multifaceted curriculum allows children to engage in hands-on art projects in an outdoor setting, with daily trips inside the studio to interact with potters’ wheels, the 3D clay printer, kilns and more.

Each week has a theme that will be expressed through hand-building and decorating with clay and will also explore other mediums. Your child can participate in a single week session or multiple weeks! No prior clay experience needed.
