My awesome summer job

This summer I am working as a ceramics instructor at Art Adventures, the kids summer camp at Oregon College of Art and Craft.

I work in a tent in the midst of a beautiful orchard full of bunnies and blackberries.

The main projects I teach each week are pots and animals. The little kids do pinch pots and the older ones do coil pots. They all get to make clay animals (or imaginative creatures). They are all fired and glazed.

Below are some examples of their finished work. I am so impressed and delighted by the kids' creativity and the beautiful artwork they make. This is probably the most fun I've ever had at a job.
