Ceramic Classes at OAC

Do not attend class if you are sick or have been exposed to someone who is.

Ceramics Exploration Series
$160 (Members $144)
Wednesdays 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm or  Thursdays 10 am – 1pm, 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Currently offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays, this independent study experience is designed to allow students to learn at their own pace while exploring projects of their own interest. Each session is three hours for six weeks. All skill levels are welcome. Explore making vessels, tiles, and sculptures with slabs, or work on the wheel. Class is loosely organized to encourage personal growth and discovery, with one on one input from instructor Steve Kline. Guidance is provided in problem-solving for success in any direction you might be interested in.

Class size is limited to 8 students to allow everyone access to kiln firings and instructor input. Please note, this is not an “open studio” – students will work on pieces in class, and those pieces will be glazed and fired within the 6 week session. Registered students will have access to the studio for glazing and trimming two days a week outside of class, schedule permitting. New students will be given a studio orientation during their first session to learn policies for preparing and storing clay, use of glazes, and studio cleanliness.

Class price includes 25 lbs. of clay, glazes, and firings. Additional clay is available for purchase.

Instructor Steve Kline made a name for himself as an artist in Louisiana making monumental sculptures for public and commercial spaces. His works can be found at Armstrong Park in New Orleans, Tulane University, a public playground in New Orleans, and other locations. He and his family relocated to Northern Michigan, and he manages OAC’s ceramics studio in addition to working in his home studio in various mediums.

Registration for each session opens a few weeks before the session begins.
