Students will make their own artist trading cards using stamping and printmaking techniques in the first two weeks. In the second two weeks students will select an artist from the RWAM collection as their theme for designing a dinner plate.  

November: Clay Ornament & Appetizer Platter
In the first two weeks, students will learn the slab technique while making their own Christmas ornaments which will be displayed as part of the “Christmas in the Mansion” celebration. In the second two weeks students will make their own appetizer platter out of clay and glaze it. These make great gifts to share with your loved ones!
