Dorothy Fox students will be able to work with clay and make their own unique relief tile! Each student will get four sessions with Karie Oakes, a professional artist. While learning the basics of working with clay, children will create a three-dimensional self-portrait.

Many students have completed the step of creating their relief tile, which will be fired in the kiln, then they will glaze them!
