Toad Abodes (Ages 7 – 9)

UPDATE: Due to recommendations about social distancing and COVID- 19, this class is cancelled for 2020. Please keep tabs on the Art Colony’s social media sites for upcoming opportunities to engage and, should you be in a position to do so, consider making a contribution by clicking here and visiting our GIVEMN site.  

Give a toad or frog a home in your garden with your own hand-built clay toad abode. Toads and frogs need shelter from the sun and will protect your plants by eating lots of bugs and slugs. Students will form projects from clay slabs, add texture with stamps and found objects, then either decorate with colorful underglazes or choose to leave abodes with an unpainted natural look. Projects will be fired and ready for pick up within two weeks.

This class is part of the Art Colony’s 2020 – 2021 theme of habitat, exploring our natural homes and those we share them with.
