2017 Summer Programs
Pottery Camps For Ages 5-13 – Create a masterpiece of a summer with camp at Black Seed Pottery Studio! In the studio, campers will build their skills on one of four pottery wheels, form sculptures at the hand building table, roll and work with giant clay slabs at the slab rolling table, carve and press texture onto imaginative surfaces, and paint their creations with colorful underglazes. In addition to our focus on clay, kids will delight in creating art using a variety of media such as acrylic painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, assemblage, jewelry making, and more. Each week promises to offer campers a fun and dynamic experience in a positive environment where the emphasis is placed on the celebration of the child as a uniquely creative artist.
Many children return year after year to explore and celebrate the arts through our summer program! Camp weeks fill early and are closed when they reach capacity. Please enroll early.

“Finding Your Center”, Girls Ages 11-14 – Have your daughter join Melissa Reddick and Rosie Molinary for a fun and creative journey into her center. From exploring one’s own thoughts and feelings in journal exercises and thoughtful discussion to finding center on the pottery wheel, from claiming our intentions out loud to declaring them in our hand built work, participants will enjoy this creative embrace of who they are and where they are right now. Our days together will be guided by these themes:
Finding Your Joy: We’ll start camp by exploring what bring us joy, how we offer joy, and taking joy in our self-exploration and creative process.
Finding Your Hope: What are our biggest wishes? What do we want more and less of in our lives? What do those things reveal to us about ourselves, our hopes, our dreams, and our possibilities?
Finding Your Heart: What are our values and loves and how do we want those things to guide how we show up in the world, our decisions, and actions?
Finding Your Voice: How can we be our most authentic selves in the world and share what we have to say in meaningful ways?
Finding Your Way: What intentions do we want to guide us moving forward and how can we practice them?
