Art Center launches Clay Studio 101 in March

TULLAHOMA — Hand-shaping clay into vessels to hold water, grains, and other items developed sometime around 6000 BC. The Mesopotamians invented the potter’s wheel. Today in addition to its utilitarian qualities, it’s become a separate art form where clay artists experiment with different shapes, glazes, and decoration to create unique, one-of-a-kind works of art.

As part of its new renaissance, the Tullahoma Art Center will host Clay Studio 101 – a three week session beginning Monday, March 2 that will focus of hand-building basics like pinch pots, slab building, and free form structures. Each student will construct a start to finish piece including bright, low fired glazes.

The fee is $135 per student, which cover all the supplies needed for the class. You can sign up by clicking here. There will be two additional sessions: one beginning March 3 and one beginning March 5. The Tullahoma Art Center is located at 401 South Jackson Street.
