Clay for Kids
with Kimberly Meyers-Baas
June 25-28, 10am-12:30pm
$145, ages 8 and up
Held in Ox-Bow’s ceramics studio, this class will introduce students to clay with basic hand-building techniques. Students will start each day by watching a series of simple demonstrations, then move to hands-on experience making and creating their own pieces. Projects are tailored to the group and involve unique functional and sculptural works designed to exercise a child's imagination. Independent thinking and problem solving is encouraged every step of the way! All of the works will be fired at the end of the course and ready for pickup at a time TBA.
Kimberly Meyers-Baas was born and raised in West Michigan where she spent her summers outdoors, curious about the environment. She also loved art. When she realized these interests are complementary, she moved to Chicago to get her B.A. in Fine Arts from Loyola University and an MA in Art Education from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is currently back in West Michigan with her family where art and nature still inspire her artwork, and she is teaching art in private and public spaces. As an artist educator, she is passionate about giving all children the opportunity to explore the significance of being shaped by our natural environment.
