Since 1988, Kids ‘N’ Clay Pottery Studio has provided an ideal environment for children to explore their creativity while learning the craft of ceramics.
Kids ‘N’ Clay was founded by artist Kevin Nierman. Kids ‘N’ Clay’s Berkeley (CA) location – and the company headquarters – are located the first floor studio of a historic, landmarked Victorian in the heart of Berkeley’s artists’ community.
Nationally recognized for its innovative programs, Kids ‘N’ Clay offers affordable ongoing weekly classes for kids 3 to 18 years of age. Students are assured of personal attention and as much assistance with their hand-built project or time on a potters’ wheel as they desire!
What they’re saying:
“I love going to Kids ‘N’ Clay. I like working with clay and showing my mom the great pots I make.” Hillary, age 7
“There are two things I look forward to all week: pottery on Saturdays and Grandma’s on Sundays … for bagels.” Eliza, age 12
“Mom, this was the best day of my whole life!” Bowen, age 8 (after his first day of summer camp)
“The Kids ‘N’ Clay instructors treat the children with such respect. They relate beautifully to each age group and find projects that fit every child and the level that they’re at!” Lynn, Rachel’s Mom
“As a developmental and clinical psychologist, I know the importance that the creative process plays in a child’s full and well-rounded development. The social skills gained, problem solving techniques learned and just the sheer pleasure of having fun are what makes a program such as that offered at Kids ‘N’ Clay an important part in a child’s ability to reach their full potential. I’m so impressed with the philosophy of the program, and the way that individual differences are recognized and celebrated. It’s an amazing program!” Laura Mason, PhD, Lily & Rachel’s Mom, Clinical Psychologist, UC-Berkeley
