In this class, clay meets humor as students bring their favorite internet memes to life! Students will learn how to build 3-4 functional cups or mugs utilizing hand building techniques such as slabs, coiling, and pinching clay. Once pottery forms are built, students will learn how to transfer their memes from paper printouts to their clay forms using a very simple trace and imprint technique. Students will then be able to finish their designs using the colorful glazes provided. This class is for teens ages 13-16. This class has a minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 8. If the class does not meet the minimum, participants will be refunded.  Please email Amy Smoot, Clay Studio Manager, at asmoot@kentuck.org with any questions.  About Amy Smoot: Amy Smoot is from Carrollton, GA and currently resides in Tuscaloosa, AL. She received her BFA in ceramics from the University of West Georgia in 2015. While there, she was studio technician and research assistant in the ceramics area. In 2019 she received her MFA from The University of Alabama where she first began teaching ceramics as a graduate assistant. Her practice consists of all types of ceramics techniques including mold-making, slip-casting, hand building, and wheel thrown pottery.   This workshop is sponsored in part by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
