The art projects will be made with clay. Students will choose and make four projects using each of three methods of construction: slab, coil and pinch. Each session will utilize one of the three methods. Each project will be fired once and glazed twice. Information on construction, glazing and textures will be included in each of the projects.



Robert Rogers has been working in ceramics since the 1950's when he had his own Ceramic Studio. Besides decorating glass, he does beautiful china painting and has worked in sculpture. He enjoys molding young artists like he molds his clay.

Vicki Buchanan has been a student of clay for over 30 years. She has studied with Susan Peterson  at the University of California and Lucy Lewis in Idyllwild as well as many other famous potters. Vickie has traded pot with the potters from Acoma Mesa in New Mexico and Mata Ortiz from Mexico. Her work includes porcelain, raku, and saggar fire. She and her husband Max like on a farm in the San Gorgonio mountain Pass when they grow pistachios.
