CERAMICS PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN AGES 5 TO 16

These ceramics classes are specially geared towards fun and artistic discovery.  In our friendly and relaxed environment, children will gain knowledge and confidence in the arts, while learning creative thinking.  Children will be exposed to and gain the experience of an actual professional pottery studio.

Ceramic artists Kassie Smith and Deb Robinson Smith, both from Moscow, have helped us get the studio set up and will be the instructors. The ceramic program has grown and we have added Rosalie Wold to instruct the Children classes and help with some of the lab times for the Adults.

Kassie earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in ceramics from Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan in 2013. Immediately following, she moved to Moscow to pursue her Master of Fine Arts at the University of Idaho, which she completed in May of 2016. Kassie has been teaching (and loving) the Introduction to Ceramics course at the University of Idaho since January of 2014. She loves nothing more than being elbows deep in a giant mound of clay at the pottery wheel and enjoys sharing her passion with others. Wheel-throwing is her building technique of choice and she has a strong affinity for functional pottery while maintaining a dedicated sculptural art practice. 

Rosalie instructed our summer art class program and the kids had a great time she is very creative. The summer kids art program Rosalie kept the kids engaged and they all had a fabulous time Plein Air painting to recreating recyclables to look like Chihuly glass sculptures. We are excited to have her as part of the Artisan Barn Team.

Rosalie grew up in Sandpoint Idaho. After graduating high school, Rosalie spent time in Cda where she learned watercolor painting on the beautiful lake Coeur d Alene. Rosalie attended the university of Idaho. She studied at the U of I working with metal, ceramic, and mixed media sculptures, as well as oil painting and installation performances. She graduated in May with a bachelor of fine arts in studio and design, as well a bachelor of science in Art education. She is certified kindergarten through grade 12. Her practicum was completed at Moscow high school under the watchful eye of Amy McMurtry.
