Free slab pottery ideas for beginners by artist Jen Pratt: this handbuilt pottery box art...
Art classes include sculpture classes, clay classes, and drawing classes (in progress and coming soon). These courses were all created by me, sculptor Jen Pratt. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture and have been an artist for over 20 years since getting my degree back in 2001.
Classes will become a larger focus on this website over the coming months, making this an even better resource for artists. So keep an eye on this page for new clay classes, drawing classes, and more!
The current selection of art classes focuses on sculpture classes and sharing clay sculpture ideas. There are two free sculpture classes available on this site. The first course guides you through creating a larger panther sculpture. It covers the entire process, from building the armature to firing, repairing, and adding a wooden base. The second course covers sculpting a small horse head without an armature.
If you’re new to the medium, there’s also a simple, handbuilt slab pottery class to help you get started with clay.
For years, these clay sculpture classes have been helping hundreds of people learn the art of sculpting clay. I posted the first versions of these courses back around 2006 if I remember correctly! These clay classes have been refined over the years, based on feedback and questions from people who’ve taken them.
In early 2023, I expanded this site to give more focus to the art classes section. The older classes will remain free to continue the tradition of helping others learn this medium with minimal cost above materials. Additionally, new premium clay sculpture classes will be offered in 2024, which will include new subjects, techniques, and video content.
