We are 5 weeks into our Focus comic free art camp for kids and young adults with autism. This week, we had fun teaching the kids how to create super hero clay masks to help them feel empowered. We taught them manual ways of creating thin slabs of clay, as well as using the slab roller machine. The kids also learned how to use the mask molds to create a basic form for their masks. They also learned how to sculpt the masks using different tools and techniques. Next week, the students will learn how to continue sculpting their masks, and some will go on to painting them; depending on their individual pace of work.
Here is an interview with Tamarah about what she thinks of our Focus comic summer camp at Desert Dragon Pottery art studio:
Here are a few photos from the class. We are proud to help the kids meet new friends and also create some great childhood memories with their family members.
