Winter Art Education Program at the Emerson
The Emerson’s winter session of art education for all ages runs from January through
March with classes and workshops for all ages in pottery, painting, drawing, printmaking, crafts
and mixed media. Our classes are interdisciplinary and multi-cultural and are taught by
professional artist-educators. A complete listing is now available on our website:

Want to participate in a fun art class with your child? The Emerson has expanded their
art program to include toddlers and young children with their families. We offer a Family Clay
Day for ages 2+ where families can create leprechaun and “bunny” sculptures. The Emerson
offers Family Art Samplers for all ages on Wednesday evenings from February 6 – May 8th.
Projects include Valentines Cards, clay whistles, ribbon pinned Easter eggs and Mother’s Day
origami birds. Sign up for each class individually. The cost for members is $25 or $30 non-
member and all materials are included. Check out our weekend pottery workshop for ages 8-
adult, featuring Animal Sculptures from earthenware clay.
Young children ages 4-8 are invited to participate in Little Kid’s Art Stories or Creating
with Clay. For children grades K-6 the Emerson features art experiences in a wide range of
media including clay, for PIR and Early Release Days and Spring Break Art Camp, Monday –
Friday, 9am – 3pm, March 11-15. In addition, for young ceramics enthusiasts we offer after
school pottery on the wheel or hand building for ages 8-13. Two additional after school classes
include: Art Around the World and Drawing and Painting.
For adults and teens the Emerson continues to offer beginning-intermediate painting and
drawing classes designed for the novice or experienced artist. New this semester are two
introductory classes: bookbinding and glass mosaic; students will learn the art, craft and the
science of making their own books or will create mirrors, stepping stones and vases from glass.
In the pottery department we offer an independent study for advanced students and
beginning-intermediate pottery classes in the morning and evening. We are also offering a
Covered Jar Workshop that promises to be fun for the experienced potter. For more information
