Homeschoolers Pottery – THURSDAYS!
January 5th, 2012
Due to last minute drop outs there are spots available in the Thursday pottery class for primary school aged home schoolers. Please pass this on if you know anyone that is interested. We need a couple more to actually run this class otherwise there will be some very disappointed budding young sculptors in our midst! Spread the word!
Classes will run out of the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Centre in Glenbrook. Here is a link to their website for more details:
Kids are guided and shown techniques but at the same time are free to create whatever it is they wish and to express themselves through this medium. Come along and make anything your heart desires, from bowls and cups, to pendants and rings, to dragons and crocodiles, pandas, cats, spag. bol on a plate, leaves, snails, coins, volcanoes….. These are all things kids have made! The class would suit primary school aged children either beginners or those with more experience with the medium – as you work at your own pace.
If you’re interested please email me asap:
The term runs for 8 weeks and is $115 per participant which covers all your materials (clay, glazes, paints, firing etc) as well. Thursdays from 1:30-3:00pm.
Thursday homeschool pottery begins on the 16th of Feb from 1:30-3:00pm
An exciting new vocal venture in the upper mountains, the Blue Mountains Children’s Choir will begin rehearsals on the 9th of February 2012 at 4:30pm in the meeting room of BANC (Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre). The choir aims to provide performance opportunities to children between 5 and 10 years of age who love singing and wish to learn about choral performance.
Conductor and home schooling mother Jade Tinkler plans to prepare the children for at least three public performances each year beginning mid-2012. Please contact Jade by email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
