PAINT YOUR OWN POTTERY

FIELD TRIP DETAILS

TYPE: PAINT YOUR OWN POTTERY
TOTAL TIME: 2 HOURS
TOTAL COST: VARIED
$50 Field Trip Fee + Cost Per Participant*

*Cost Per Participant is dependent on selected bisque pottery items to paint. Items start at $5 each, and increase in value depending on size and complexity. Field trip coordinators have the option of selecting one like item for each field trip participant, or participants can select their own pieces.

(TOTAL COST, EXAMPLE: If there are 15 students in attendance and each painted a $5 ornament, the cost would be $50 + (15 x $5) = $125)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Field trip participants can expect to engage creatively by using glaze to paint onto pre-made 3D ceramic bisque-ware items. We have a wide variety of bisque items from which to choose, and our glazes are formulated to allow maximum flexibility and creativity.

We start by having participants map out some possible designs using paper and crayons/colored pencils/markers. Participants will then have a brief “critique” where they will work to determine which design they like best and why. Lastly, participants will translate their designs onto their selected piece of pottery.

IMPORTANT: Please note participants will not be able to leave with their creations on the same day. Pieces will need to be loaded into the kiln and fired. Field trip coordinators can expect pieces to be ready within approximately two weeks of field trip date.

REQUIREMENTS
  • To help us adequately prepare for your field trip, we ask that you please provide the approximate total number of participants and their ages prior to the date of the trip.
  • Items created during field trip will need to be picked up from the ZACC at a later date. Please feel free to call and inquire about the status of your pottery, as the ZACC will not call when items have been fired.
  • Field trip fee is due at time of booking, remaining balance due no later than booking date.
