Our Youth Ceramics Camp is a great way for your child to get an introduction into the world of clay! In this week-long, 3-hour per day camp, we introduce your student to building mugs and pottery by hand, creating gnome/wizard sculptures as well as an introduction to the potter’s wheel. The projects we bring to the students are very open and allow our students to use their own creativity to personalize each project. By the end of the week, our students will glaze their work, which will then be fired and available for pick-up the following week.
We will have a 20-minute break for a snack, so please pack something for your student. Please avoid nut-allergy foods. We will be finishing clean up and putting away our projects around 4:10 pm to allow you to pick up your student any time after 11:45am. We ask that you bring a shoe box for your student’s work, as to aid in the successful pick-up of all their awesome work they made!
At the Little Studio, we are all about small-scale learning. We keep our camps smaller with eight students total. Our Instructor James Carlevatti received a Bachelors of Fine Art from the Columbus College of Art & Design, in Columbus, Ohio. After moving to Charlotte, he has had two years experience teaching summer camps at The Cornelius Arts Center with ages ranging from five to 16 as well as teaching teen ceramics classes. Additionally, James was a long-term substitute at Charlotte Country Day Middle School, working with 5th and 6th grade. His experience with large and small groups and a variety of ages helps to create a structured yet nurturing environment for students to learn and experiment with their creativity.
