Clay classes are taught by area artist, Sarah Kargol, who graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2000 with emphases in ceramics and sculpture. She has taught clay classes at art centers in South Dakota, South Carolina, and Iowa. She also instructed college ceramics courses at William Penn University before focusing her efforts on art education at the Oskaloosa Art Center.

Clay Classes at the Art Center

When working with clay, individuals can develop communication skills, emotional regulation, and problem-solving abilities, making it a great way to promote personal development. In addition, clay work can provide a calming and meditative experience, reducing stress and anxiety levels. Private clay classes would make a unique date night, a cool team-building activity, or a fun family outing.
