Making a clay bowl
Program Instructor: Heather Palmer, Queensbury High School Art Teacher

AN AWESOME VALUE FOR THIS TYPE OF PROGRAM, PLUS IT IS SO MUCH FUN!

This 5-day workshop is an opportunity to explore hand-building techniques and throwing on the potter’s wheel. Every child will have his/her own potter’s wheel for use,
too! Each participant will create a bowl using objects to create texture and personal style, as well as, complete a thrown vessel on the wheel. The participants will be able to glaze their works and experiment with glazing techniques. This is a great opportunity for young artists to take a simple lump of clay and turn it into something magical!

Mrs. Palmer has been teaching art at Queensbury High School for many years and is involved in various community service projects. Her passion for the arts led her to study art in Siena, Italy, become a tour guide, and work as an apprentice in a clay studio for the duration of her stay. She has traveled to 21 countries in Europe and Africa, while learning new techniques and developing her skills. She believes that
the most exciting adventure is to see the world through the eyes of her students and inspire them, in turn, to go out and see the world!
