Guest Artist: Clay Queen Marisa visits Art City

Today we have a special guest artist teaching the youth how to make ceramic animals!  At Art City we call her the Clay Queen but she also goes by Marisa who has been working with clay for over 3o years. Marisa starts off the activity with a quick history lesson on clay then gets right into the activity. Todays challenge is turing the clay into an animal. Marisa takes the youth through a step by step process on turing a block of clay into the animal of their choice.

Once the animals are complete Marisa will take the clay and heat it in a special oven and in two weeks she will return with ceramic animals. Then we paint!!
