Are your teens looking for a way to express themselves creatively? Clay is a relaxing and therapeutic way to engage with themselves and the outside world. This is a very laid-back class with no pressure to create anything outside of the artist’s desire. They will have creative freedom and be encouraged to create art from the heart.
