THE LITTLE POTTER’S STORY TIME & CLAY PLAY CLASS
THE CERAMICS STUDIO IN SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO
During spring break, my children and I were invited by The Ceramics Studio in San Juan Capistrano, CA to come and experience their Little Potter’s Story Time & Clay Play class.
The class is designed for children ages 3.5 – 6 years old.
Each week, a member of The Ceramics Studio friendly and fun staff read a different short story to the children. After which, the staff instructs the children in recreating one of the story characters from a lump of clay.
In two weeks, you return to have your child paint their artwork with glaze for no additional charge. The Ceramics Studio will then fire the pieces for a second time and call you to let you know when they are ready for pick-up.
I first learned about The Ceramics Studio from a fellow mom. She said her Sunday school class went on a field trip to the studio and really enjoyed it.
The Ceramics Studio is a very cool-looking space to make art with friends and family for all ages. Their rustic industrial barn décor, music system and “Coyote Movie Den” for the little kids make it an awesome place to paint pottery, hand build, sculpt, or throw a bowl on the potters wheel!
In fact, it’s the only place of its kind – where you can participate in the creation of all types of ceramic arts under one roof.
The Little Potter’s Story Time & Clay Play class is offered EVERY THURSDAY from 3:30 – 4:30 pm. The cost is $79 for 4 class sessions or $22 for a single drop-in class.
There is no need to enroll, just on stop in for an afternoon of fun and creativity!While in attendance, I overheard the store owner Melissa tell a group of teens that the adult class was going to the beach soon to fire their own ceramics in the sand. How cool is that!
After we finished The Little Potter’s Story Time & Clay Play class, the children selected a piece of premade art work to paint. My daughter selected a cute mermaid and my son picked a scary cobra, of course.
I found the entire process of sculpting, painting and firing a ceramic piece to be a very good lesson in the art of patience.
In fact, when almost everything in our society is instantaneous, The Ceramics Studio offers patrons a chance to step back in time, relax, use their creative minds and explore a new form of art for most people – ceramics!
The Ceramics Studio is located at 31878 Del Obispo Street, Suite 106 in San Juan Capistrano, CA.
They are open:
Tue – Fri: 12:00 – 6:00 pm
Sat: 10:00 am – 7:00 pm
