Characters in Clay: Ooglies - Residency

Myrna Minnis

Myrna Minnis leads students in an enjoyable, creative atmosphere that stimulates a fun project  combining visual and language arts with imagination and creativity. Students create their own characters without competition from historical, whimsical, or imaginary situations, eliminating stress. They complete their characters by writing or telling stories about them.


This program has a $5 materials fee for the clay and materials that will be used during this program. Myrna is more than happy to fire the ooglies after students make them for an additional $2 per student firing fee.


"Our young people need art to express their feelings and emotions.  NOW, more than ever.  Clay is a favorite medium for students - I don’t know why, they just LOVE  it.  And clay is a wonderful alternative to television and computer games." -Myrna
