Please note that this class will require the use of an ipad and an apple pencil (1st or 2nd generation). The programs, Procreate and Tinkercad, must also be installed prior to class. Figment will have a limited number of iPads available for use during class but students are highly encouraged to bring their own. (Please inform us if you can NOT bring an iPad.)

Thursday After School Ceramics Classes
Thursdays, Fall 2023/Spring 2024 • 3:30 to 5:30PM

Join us for a ceramics class! Each month-long session will include hand building projects using pinch pot, coil, and slab techniques. Projects will vary each session – students can join for one session or continue on to improve their skills! We will fire their creations in our kiln so that they will be ready to display.
Are you interested in having your child attend multiple days including Thursday Ceramics? You can absolutely do that! The price would be our monthly tuition for X number of days per week plus the $50 non-refundable monthly supply fee. For example, 2 days a week is $350 plus the $50 non-refundable monthly supply fee would make your total $400/month.
Monthly cost: $175/month plus the $50 monthly non-refundable supply fee.

About our After School Classes
These programs integrate all the concepts we believe in at Figment: S.T.E.A.M. principles, maker mentality, process art, and play-based learning.
Heard of STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math)? We believe that adding Art to the equation increases interest and fosters creativity. Because of this hands-on approach to learning, kids get excited about learning and working together as a team.
We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. As such, adults are there to guide children by providing the right materials, teach technique and assist along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence. As our artists get older and more interested in new mediums and techniques, we work on skill-building.
Our dedicated Maker Space expands on the foundation of STEAM. Students learn through hands-on, often collaborative projects. This project-based approach builds your maker’s confidence and encourages analytic problem-solving.
Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. Play is the basis of experimental learning and the Discovery Lab offers something to engage everyone. It’s a place where your child can be anything, a fashion designer, an engineer, a scientist. They can also just grab a book or play a game with friends.
