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 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.

Light Matters

July 11 – Sept 12 (10 classes)

Tuition: $200

Photography is all about light. How much is available, the temperature or color of it and how the camera captures it. In this class we will venture out for the first 5 weeks and photograph interesting destinations in and around Pittsburgh. Learn to use your camera in aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual mode. The last five weeks of the class will be spent editing your photos in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw. Finally you will prepare 3 pieces for our class exhibition including cutting mats and framing. The last night of class we will celebrate your work with a reception open to the public. As always, we “Learn, Create and Celebrate”.
