In this 12-week class for ages 12-16, Students will use the potter’s wheel to develop their foundational skills for creating hand-made vessels. This class will cover the techniques of forming, shaping and decorating vases, cups and bowls. As students refine these skills, they will work on more complex projects that will enable them to combine techniques and push their own creativity and problem solving abilities. Glazing and other surface treatments will be explored. Class size will remain at reduced capacity for increased social distancing, masks indoors remain mandatory
In this hand-building class, we will explore the creation of ceramic wares specific to our personal food narratives of choice. We will learn various building techniques to help us translate our conceptual ideas into physical forms through design and function. This class will challenge us to create outside of conventional ideas of tableware, as well as emphasize building in multiples, surface design and glaze testing. Overall, we will focus on the presentation and interaction with our clay vessels, the food, and the consumer.
Opening minds, one heart at a time: Join bereaved fathers Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin as they share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation amidst the Arab Israeli conflict. Participate in a discussion on the human side of the conflict and why relationship building, mutual understanding of the “other side,” and framework for reconciliation are necessary for any sustainable peace agreement. Rami and Bassam are former co-Directors of The Parents Circle Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families.

The Peale is thrilled to host an important, topical conversation with thought leaders and doers–among them are the Baltimore “Guardians,” featured in the acclaimed community art project The Guardians: Reshaping History. The Guardians are a cohort of Baltimore’s finest, yet underrecognized, leaders. They are ambitious black women leading change in the everyday lives of their families, neighbors and communities. The Guardians panelists will explore individual power and community growth with author Jon Alexander.
