We offer fun and educational wheel throwing camps for ages 8 and up. Summer clay camps provide young artists the outlet for exercising both critical and creative thinking through clay. If you want to nurture your child’s creativity, this is the place to be!
Students learn the skills to make functional pots and decorative clay art both on the wheel and by hand. They will then learn how to decorate their creations using underglazes and glaze. The projects they complete will be food safe, made from non-toxic materials which are all supplied. In addition, students will be shown the firing process, leading to a full understanding of the entire operation. With our low teacher-to-student ratio, every camper will get the attention they need.
Morning sessions are from 9:00 am until noon for pre-teens (8-12 years old) and afternoon sessions are from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm for teens (13 years old an up). Each session is 2 weeks long, Monday through Thursday, starting on Monday, June 12th. The cost per 2-week session is $330.
Terra Incognito is located at 246 Chicago Ave in Oak Park. It has held Potter’s Wheel camps for over 30 years. Several of our former students are now well-known artists and teachers. We are thrilled to help cultivate the next generation of artists from Oak Park. Visit and sign up at terraincognitostudio.com.
