Class 3. Designing Serenity – Underglaze Painted Wall Piece

Class Cost: $112.50 (This price reflects a 10% discount off the cost of the Zoom class of $125 because there is no "live" component.)


  1. 12 Digital downloadable documents
  2. 33 Instructional videos at approximately 4 hours, 19 minutes
  3. Class Recording (including Q & A session) at approximately 3 hours 

Skill Level: A basic understanding of ceramics is necessary. No drawing skills are needed as participants can take a photo of their desired imagery and copy it with tracing paper.

With the world continuing to be off balance, I’m trying to find some simplicity and serenity. What better way to do that than create a wall piece that features a visual element that brings peace of mind. Whether it’s a morning cup of coffee or listening to a singing bird that relaxes you, we can create a wall piece centered around it.
