Put on your space suits and get ready to blast off into outer space! Each week, students explore a different aspect of space while gaining exposure to science, literacy and art. We’ll begin each session with a space-themed book, and end with a hands-on activity for them to take home. Caregivers must stay with children.

The final class will be time to finish glazing any final pieces not yet complete. Price includes one 10 lb. bag of clay, glazes, tools, kiln firing, designated shelf for creations, and teacher time. Additional bags of clay may be purchased from the museum for $13.
