    CREATE Arts Center, 914 Silver Spring Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910, USA

    Spend some quality time as a family exploring the world of clay! Whether your clay creations are purely decorative or practical pieces, you'll treasure the time you spend working both independently and as a family.

    Explore clay construction (pinch, coil, and slab -- all hand building; no wheel), and various glaze finishes. Projects are fired in a kiln on our premises, and students will take home several finished pieces. Younger children will need their adult pottery partner to assist through part of the process, which is part of the fun you'll have together!  

    For more information about how we will ensure a safe experience, visit our website: https://createartscenter.org/programs/art-for-kids-teens/

    The COMMUNITY STORIES FILM FESTIVAL, produced by Docs In Progress, spotlights contemporary and historical documentaries about our people, places and events of Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia.

    What began in 2010 as a one night showcase of Docs In Progress student work has grown to a weekend of public screenings of films by everyone from professional filmmakers to first-time adult and youth filmmakers, sharing stories from our local community. Each year, more than 500 people engage with filmmakers and those who have been filmed. This year, COMMUNITY STORIES will be a virtual festival via Eventive.

  • ONSITE* Family Pottery Mini Session II

    November 8, 2020  2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    CREATE Arts Center, 914 Silver Spring Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20910, USA

    Spend some quality time as a family exploring the world of clay! Whether your clay creations are purely decorative or practical pieces, you'll treasure the time you spend working both independently and as a family.

    Explore clay construction (pinch, coil, and slab -- all hand building; no wheel), and various glaze finishes. Projects are fired in a kiln on our premises, and students will take home several finished pieces. Younger children will need their adult pottery partner to assist through part of the process, which is part of the fun you'll have together!
