Sharon Art Studio

The arts celebrate our differences, yet offer people of all ages and

backgrounds a way to share experiences and insights. Through the arts we explore the meaning of our lives as individuals and as members of our communities. By offering everyone access to art education and

appreciation, we build our sense of community.

Ceramics Intensive for Adults

This is a morning class that meets Monday through Thursday for 3-weeks. You'll explore a variety of ceramic techniques, including hand-built pinch pots, slab-built boxes, sculpture, wheel throwing, surface texture, and applying slips, oxides, and glaze techniques. It's a great class for beginners or experienced potters wanting to take their skills to the next level. Clay, tools, glazes and all firings are included in the price of the intensive. Students in this session are also eligible for enrollment in open studio.

Pottery Workshop

Student Spotlight: Dan Sheehan

This spring our Program Manager, Cassandra Sechler, interviewed Dan and discussed his creative process, artist background, passion for drawing, and his relationship to Sharon Art Studio.


“I hope that my drawings are a response to what is in front of me instructor encouraged me to ‘create a world’ in drawing and not leave a figure floating in a white space. I think of the background of the drawing as a stage set or as a part of a dream and try to integrate dream and reality in the work.”
