Most people know Maho Bay Campground as a laid-back, environment-friendly, low-stress place to relax. It's not so well known as an art school. Yet, that's what it is, too, especially this year with a re-energized curriculum.
Weekly classes are designed for island visitors, generally two hours long. They includes Kids and Family Potter's Wheel, Kids or Adults Clay Bells and Whistles, and mask making. Each promises to get you out the door with something you've created.
There are extended classes, also. Each meets for several weeks, three hours at a time. They include Relief and 3-D Sculpture, Glazed Earthenware, and Off the Wheel Techniques.
There are also glass blowing classes, with an emphasis on art you can make from recycled materials.
Early in May, Maho featured Steven Branfman as the Clay artist-in-residence.
