The Sedona Arts Center’s ceramic department operates free from the constraints of grades and benefits from the talents of its ceramic faculty and assistants as well as nationally recognized guest instructors. This combination allows our department to offer flexible and diverse programming in both traditional and contemporary techniques.
Through demonstration and one-on-one instruction, students will learn to throw a variety of forms on the potter’s wheel or techniques to create hand-built works. Slab roller, extruder and forms are also available to create functional and decorative pieces. Tuition includes the first 25-pound bag of clay, firings and glazes, and one open studio session per week.
TUITION: 6 Sessions: $220 (Members $202) includes the first bag of clay. Additional bags of clay may be purchased during class for $30 per bag which includes glazing & firing fees. Enrolled students may also participate in one open studio session per week.
Cancellation Policy: Student may cancel up to 7 days before the first day of class for a 15% fee. There are no refunds after the 7-day cut-off date. If the Sedona Arts Center has to cancel the class for any reason, all money paid will be refunded in full.
Here's what people are saying about Dennis' class:
“Dennis is a fantastic instructor, enthusiastic, encouraging, helpful, shares great and new ideas and demonstrates methods showing simple ways to be creative. Always upbeat and positive. I love his class and hope to continue being part of this great experience. Taking ceramics at SAC has added something very special to my life. Working with clay and actually making something with my hands allows me let go of all the stress of daily life. Meeting other potters and seeing what they create is amazing. It means so much to me. Thank you.” – Arlene George, Sedona AZ
“Dennis Ott always makes himself available for his students. He goes out of his way to help each and every one of them, even when the student is annoying (to me anyway). This is a great program for someone who wants to answer the question of whether s/he would like to do pottery. Dennis has students playing in mud and touching the inner child instantly.” – EM Short, Cottonwood AZ
“Dennis has an ability to move between personalities with very little effort. Dennis and his 'minions' (I kid) make the SAC ceramics experience a wonderful, dynamic and enriching time!” – Charles Rawson, Cottonwood AZ
