This Summer, Make Nashville is hosting a fun series of camps for youth designed to pique their curiosities and keep them learning over the break. We will be offering 6 different camps for two age groups: ages 7-9 and ages 10-12.

 

July 9-13

Ceramics Camp

Campers will expand their imaginations while accomplishing lasting works of clay, both sculptural and functional. They will learn to work independently and collaboratively in a small class setting with plenty of individual instruction. This camp focuses on many ceramic hand-building techniques—leaving plenty of room for exploration and decoration. Each camper can expect to create and glaze 5-10 ceramic projects in the duration of this camp. The 3 hour, half-day camp will include a short break for snacks provided by parents or caregivers. Early drop-off and late pick-up options are available.
