Courses for Adults
Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced potter, you’ll have a great time at MCG. Although we tend to gravitate towards wheel throwing and functional pottery, you are welcome to create hand-built ornamental and sculptural work, as well. Works made in this class will be high-fired in our gas kiln so they’ll look great and also be microwave and dishwasher safe. We’ll also do some raku firing, which is an exciting process that leads to interesting and often beautiful results.
Environmental photography can be everything from photographing landscapes to capturing a person in their environment. In this class you’ll learn digital SLR photography basics and some advanced techniques using your own camera or one we provide for you. You’ll learn to shoot in manual mode exercising maximum control over your outcomes. You’ll go on photo shoots to exciting locations in Pittsburgh, then you’ll edit, mat and frame your work for an exhibition at MCG!
