OMA Pittsburgh’s Art in the Garden invests in the resiliency and social-emotional development of youth and families. To care for the health of all involved, and to prevent the spread of covid-19, Art in the Garden’s winter session will be virtual. Through this program, we are committed to providing engaging activities that foster social and emotional growth and help meet the needs of your family.
Winter Clay Project (Virtual Family Camp)
Led by The Clay Project teaching artists Sandra Moore and Shawn Terrell
The Clay Project is creating a community made ceramic mural. We invite you and your family to join us virtually. We get together on Zoom for 40 minutes once a week. We are creating small hand-built pieces, the design for the mural. You learn clay building techniques during our online sessions. Technique U-Tube videos will be shared. Working together we are creating a mural.
This is an all-skill and all ages class. You can learn the basics or develop more advanced skills making coils, stamping, pinching, doing slab work and 3D additive and subtractive processes, and assemblage. When restrictions are lifted, we will plan the building of the mural at Borland Garden. We hope that you will join us for this beautiful collaboration!
