If a student prefers to be in a class that is not listed in their age group, please contact the teacher or Beth Calengor at 435-764-2286 for permission. Any student may enroll at any time in a single class or in an on-going class. It is not necessary to join a class at the beginning, and joining late in the session will not make ceramics more difficult for the student.

Gaia Nafziger

Children’s classes that grow, not only their skill and knowledge of the art of pottery and how to create it, but also act as a safe space that allows development of positive social skills and sense of self. Gaia is a potter who was given her lifelong love for all things clay by these very CacheARTS children’s ceramics classes as a child. She studied Environmental Science at Utah State University and currently, and contentedly, works as a baker at Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread.
