Milissa Beale will guide beginning adult students in ceramics classes at the Chesterton Art Center.

The Chesterton Art Center has announced that beginning ceramics classes for adults will be resuming onsite in April. Instructor Milissa Beale will guide beginning students wishing to learn the art of ceramics.

During this five-week course starting on Wednesday, April 7, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., participants will learn basic techniques for wheel throwing, hand building, and how to finish their works using standard decorating and glazing styles. Students will make 3-5 finished pieces of artwork.  There will also be an additional daytime class session on Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., starting on April 9.

For those individuals with ceramics experience, there will be a ceramics open studio class offered on Friday nights beginning on April 9, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.  There is no structured lesson plan time during the sessions, but clay instructor Milissa Beale will be present to offer help and guidance through the artistic process. Works created in open studio will be able to be fired for the participants.

Cost for the beginning and open studio classes is $165, with members receiving a $20 discount. Cost of clay (25 lbs.) is an additional $20, payable to the instructor on the first day of class. All other supplies are included.

To register and pay for both beginning ceramics and open studio ceramics, call the art center at 219-926-4711.  Seating is limited due to COVID-19, so early registration is recommended.
