CLASS

INFORMATION

COVID-19 Update: We are currently meeting on Zoom until we can meet in person again. 

For pottery classes, I offer local deliveries of the supplies directly to your home (included in tuition). For deliveries outside of Laguna Niguel, the delivery fee will be an additional $30/mo.

 

Beginning Feb. 2nd, we will meet on Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30am.

I will need your address (so I can bring clay and pick up your projects every couple of weeks), 

and your charter school PO or Venmo payment.

To enroll:  
You may join at any time since the projects are step-by-step and I repeat the basics in every class.            
Send an email to robinyoungpottery@gmail.com with dates requested, the student's name, age, your cell number, and home address for delivery of clay. 

I will send a link to the virtual Zoom class before the start of school, and will send reminders the day before each class. 

Please view the schedule below for details regarding the Zoom class and tuition.

The various art projects students create in class are special handmade treasures that will be enjoyed for years to come. 

Since classes are small, individual attention is given to challenge advanced students and to help beginners build confidence.

Location:

--- Private home studio in Laguna Niguel, Orange County

--- Accepting inquiries about Charter School locations during the school year

Drawing & Painting
Pottery

The Pottery class focuses on:

  • Hand-building

  • Wheel-throwing

  • Sculpting

  • Slab rolling

  • Glazing

 

     Pottery takes two weeks to dry, and then it is fired, glazed, and fired a second time. The entire process takes four weeks to complete. Projects created on the final day of class will be dip-glazed and may be picked up at a later date.

 

   Below are a few of the projects we may create. Artists often create more than one version of the same subject, either altering or embellishing the piece to make it unique. Students who have taken this class previously will not be repeating lessons and will be challenged to add to their existing knowledge and skills.

 

Pottery Projects include:

  • Wheel-thrown cups, bowls, vases, and mugs

  • Hand-built birdhouse

  • Fish, dolphin, and whale sculptures

  • Dog sculpture

  • Hand-built coffee mug

  • Sculpted roses & flowers

  • Bowl from pinch pot

  • Decorative box with lid

  • Cylinder pencil holder

​The Drawing & Painting Class focuses on:

  • The Elements of Art, including Color Theory (line, color, shape, form, space, value, and texture)

  • The Principles of Design (balance, unity, movement, pattern, repetition, emphasis, and contrast)

  • Techniques of master artists like Vincent Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, and Matisse

  • The various styles and influence of Master Artists such as:

  • Paul Cezanne - Study of color scheme; drawing with foreground, background & middle ground; and using value for the illusion of a light source in still life fruit painting Apples and Cakes

  • Leonardo da Vinci - Study of perspective in The Last Supper

  • Claude Monet - Study of Impressionism in Waterlilies
