Wanna hear some awesome news? We've added a new class to our roster. The new clay wheel class is starting on February 5th! We currently teach polymer clay and hand-building classes each week. But there has been so much demand for wheel throwing that we created a brand new class to fill the need.
Everybody should throw on the wheel at least once in their life. It's a very mesmerizing, hands-on experience. And the beautiful thing is that kids can have fun whether they create a perfect vessel or not.
Here's more information about the class starting on 2/5/16:
CLAY WHEEL CLASS
Time: 5:20-6:20 Fridays
Class Size: min 2, max 6
Fee: $95/mo (4 classes) and deposit. Firing fees will be assessed and charged separately.
Designed for beginners, this class offers a general overview of the ceramics process through combined hand-building and wheel throwing work. Students will learn and experiment with a variety of pottery-making techniques including slab and coil forms, surface design, glazing, firing and 1:1 training on the potter’s wheel.
If you're interested in learning how to throw, as well, we offer adult art workshops. Learn more about them here.
We loved the Winter Break Camps back in December so much that we decided to do another one this February! When school lets out for mid-winter break, we'll be here ready to make art all day long. We'll take advantage of no-school days with 3-hour classes over the course of 4 fun days. Each class session will cover a one or two different projects in various art media.
We offer two sessions of camp from February 15-18. You can choose the morning camp (from 9am-12pm) or the afternoon camp (from 1pm-4pm) or BOTH! For students who want to attend both camps, we offer a supervised lunch break, as well.
If you're not an existing student who attends weekly classes, don't worry! This is a great opportunity to learn about a lot of art in a short amount of time. We welcome all friends, old and new.
Learn more about camp and sign up here. Register ASAP to secure a spot, as this is one of our most popular camps. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Have you ever been to the Wine Walk downtown? It's a fun "first Friday" series that offers wine tastings and fun events at various venues throughout downtown Issaquah. We're happy to partner with the city to provide fun art projects at each Wine Walk this year from February through June.
The first night is on February 5th. We'll be in the library making fun linocut prints. Stop by to say hi and make one yourself!
We're so happy with the turnout of our first ever Manga Night at Museo. Manga Night is our newest Friday Night event (in addition to Pizza & Picasso and Masters Night). Over 20 people showed up to learn about Character Design with Miss Sarah! Students learned about body proportions and manga styling, then created their own characters with markers and watercolors.
Seating is already limited for our next Manga Night on February 12, so be sure to sign up early. If you're interested in diving deeper into the world of manga, check out our weekly classes here.
