Time: 9:00am-12:00pm

In this week long clay camp we will explore the different ways clay can be used to make sound and instruments!  Students will be encouraged to get messy and make some noise as we learn how musical art and physical art combine. 

Please note that working with clay is a process. Students will be required to return to the Art Center at a later date to pickup their kiln fired work.

Masks may be required in the classroom depending on community spread. Masks requirements may be subject to change. If you are not willing to wear a mask please do not register for our youth classes.

About the Teacher

Marley Montague’s first memories growing up are almost all surrounded by some medium of art; knitting with her grandmother, making jewelry to sell, or even school murals. Marley started her secondary education at Buffalo State University in the Art Education Program. There she took a wide variety of classes from weaving, to jewelry making, to painting; but the class that really stole her heart was ceramics. After a few years at Buffalo State she chose to move to Syracuse and apprentice at Papavero Clay Studio in Skaneateles. There, Marley has continued to create ceramic pieces, in addition to teaching classes and events held at the studio; including: wheel throwing, hand building, and smaller pinch pot classes for both children and adults. For the past two years Marley has learned from and worked at Papavero under artist Jeremy Randall, allowing her work to grow as both an instructor as well as an artist. Marley continues to look forward to the new experiences that will help her continue to develop her work further.
