              Come and explore the wonderful language of Japanese, where we will cover their two alphabets as well as how to introduce ourselves to one another. Learn to count, write, and speak beginner Japanese and find new ways to engage your mind in activity.

              This is a great class for beginners to ceramics! In this class, students will learn the principles of hand building, wheel throwing and become familiar with the clay process.

              The first half of the course will cover the techniques of pinch, slab, and coil building as students build and glaze their own plate, bowl, and mug set to take home.

              Next will be an introduction to the potter's wheel, focusing on the core skills of wedging, centering, opening, and pulling walls to create a cylinder, steps which are the foundation of all thrown pots.

              This four week class will meet twice weekly. To maximize skills covered in class, students are highly encouraged to come work on projects and techniques during open studio time which is included in class tuition through the duration of the class.

              Age 16+; Skill level: beginner


               Genevieve Paddock

              Like so many other potters, I was first introduced to clay in a high school ceramics class. By senior year, I was taking most of my lunches in the ceramics room with the other art geeks, spending as much time playing with clay as I could. But, again, it was the clay’s versatility that I was drawn to. You can make it look like anything you can imagine - tree bark, skin, leather, metal - you name it! And the meditative spin of a wheel, who can resist that?

              To pursue my interest in the arts, I attended Bennington College in Vermont, a school with a deep history in ceramic arts, where I received my B.A. in ceramics. During that time, I also worked in a ceramics factory, under glazing literally hundreds of pots a day! The following year I had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and intern at the Capitol Children’s Museum and create a ceramics studio and program. In 2003, I moved to Grant County where I met my husband, David, and joined him in the Nomad Sign Art studio and learned the old school art of hand lettering and hand-crafting signs. These days my 500-pound potter’s wheel sits cozily in our living room next to the woodstove, where our whole family can learn to play on it.

              I am extremely excited to share my love of clay at the Painted Sky Center for the Arts. So many of my best memories and closest bonds have been made working in studios, making art, and playing in the mud.

              Goals:

              Students will be learning hiragana and katakana, self introductions, proper grammar end structures, particles for sentence creation, adjective conjugation, verb conjugation, numbers, frequency words, and time allowing, some rudimentary kanji.


              Timeline:

              The first three classes will be focused on hiragana, katakana, and learning some simple particles. 


              The following two weeks will be centered on self-introduction and basic vocabulary.


              The next week, we will be exploring how to end sentences formally and with proper tenses.


              Moving on will be adjectives so we can begin creating our very own sentences.

              Verbs next to encourage self expression in the language.


              Numbers followed by dates and times.


              Frequency words such as sometime often and never.


              If time allows, we will start on some rudimentary kanji to introduce students to reading more Japanese.



              I am Halle Robertson, I have taught Japanese as a tutor and as a lab instructor at Boise State University, I graduated with a Japanese minor and intend to live there to teach English through the JET program.

              I started doing pottery in high school and instantly fell in love with it. I took as many ceramics classes in college as I could fit into a busy schedule. I can't resist the methodical but messy nature of making pottery, and I love being able to make beautiful but useful pieces. Since moving to Grant County, I've been so happy to find a ceramics studio with such an incredibly kind, welcoming community of artists. When I'm not playing with mud in the studio you can find me doing something (anything!) outdoors with my border collie, baking, and trying out any kind of arts and crafts.

              Saying "Thank You" is something we all have been practicing all our lives..

              How often do we stop and thank ourselves? It is time to thank yourself for everything you have been doing.


              It is so easy to get lost in everyday life that stopping and appreciating yourself becomes something very rare.

              Let's get together and give ourselves a bit of love by relaxing and doting this Thanks Giving Flower.

              My name is Skirma. I am a Marketing and Psychology professional, but also found my passion in painting and started applying it to my therapies.


              This time I invite you to slow down after all the Christmas activities and spend some time focusing on your feelings, relax and paint your Mandala.

              In my early teenage years, I found psychology incredibly interesting and it explains my passion for helping people, training, consulting, and coaching them.

              I have been helping people in different parts of the world; Nigeria, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, the UK, Denmark, Lithuania, Ukraine, and USA.

              Originally, I am from Lithuania, but now, I and my family live in NY. We love spending time in nature so we are blessed to have this opportunity to come and spend some time in John Day, Oregon.

              Choose a Christmas Tree Gnome or Votive Christmas Tree, and we'll paint while listening to Christmas music!

              These are both lit with a battery-operated tea light (included). The gnome is 8H x 5W, and the tree is 7.25H x 4.5W.

              Either will brighten someone's Christmas this year!

              Let's paint an adorable Highlander Christmas Cow - what will its name be?

              The black background will make this festive cow stand out, but you can choose your own background color!

              I'll have the basic sketch on your canvas. Let's have fun painting together and visiting!
