This class is for all skill levels. Students will be guided through the process of throwing and finishing utilitarian forms. Students will be taught how to make forms ranging from mugs and bowls for the beginner to casseroles, pitchers and jars for the more advanced students. Students will learn the importance of creating utilitarian work that can be both aesthetically pleasing and used daily. The class will focus on a ground up process from clay prep to a finished piece ready to be put to use. This class will be a great introductory class for students new to clay and a challenge for returning students looking to expand their body of work.

Students will leave the class with essential cooking skills they can use to continue their education in bigger kitchens and recipes. Those who take the class will leave with the abc’s of cooking and there will be no meal they can’t make!
Morgan Culbertson, 13, Wellsville: “Cooking is fun! And I get to hang out with kids my own age while we learn how to make things. My favorite thing to make so far is cookies.”

The focus of this course will be directed towards obtaining the skills and knowledge required for a student guitarist to function and flourish in a traditional music classroom, similar to the music programs found in Allegany County schools. Subject material will include guitar fundamentals, learning the notes on the guitar, reading standard notation and tablature, transposition techniques for guitarists in the traditional band classroom, proper equipment practices, jazz band, and more. Students will need to bring their own instrument in working condition or borrow one from the WCAC for a $60 deposit. Electric or acoustic guitars are adequate but students will need to provide their own amplifiers if needed. The first half of each class session will be focused on fundamentals and the second half will be covering more advanced concepts.Associated Acts/Performances
