Whether it’s wheel throwing or hand building, Wildwood Green Arts invites adults to come get their hands dirty at the newly constructed ceramics studio. No matter the project, the ceramics studio is a warm and welcoming place to wile away some hours and learn – or hone – ceramics based skills.
Novice and intermediate adult classes begin the week of September 12. During each 6 week session the accomplished in-house artists/instructors will demonstrate and assist with a variety of pottery techniques, including wheel throwing, hand building, tile making and sculpting, as well as surface decoration and glazing. Designed to nurture individual expression, students are encouraged to develop and achieve their own original ideas and vision. Students also have access to open studio sessions as scheduled and special workshops.
Wildwood Green Arts is a nonprofit community-based arts and education center with an emphasis on collaboration, innovation and the environment. Inspired and founded by Doug Gilberg, executive director and local ceramic enthusiast, the center is poised to grow and expand with the needs of the community. Gilberg believes the study of art and nature is both therapeutic and fun, and one of the best escapes from a busy schedule.
“Our goal is to enhance our community through art education,” Gilberg said. “Over time we will expand our offerings and physical facilities where we envision students and professionals working side by side, creating and studying anything from ceramics to photography to native and sustainable horticulture.”
Volunteers and financial supporters with knowledge and passion for the arts also are invited to get involved in this grassroots effort to create a more beautiful, capable and informed world.
