During one-hour class sessions held Tuesday–Saturday, fingers coax symmetrical shapes from fast-spinning clay mounted on traditional pottery wheels. Instructors begin class with a demonstration of techniques geared toward beginners before unleashing students upon their stores of supplies and tools. At the end of class, each participant takes home a spun and fired ceramic creation.

Dahl Arts Ceramic Studio

Dirk Dahl discovered the joy of ceramics in high school when his artistic nature immediately took to the elegant accidents and random, dramatic shapes even a beginner could coax from clay. Ceramics became the bread and butter of his long artistic career, but—like many artists—he found his studio confining, and sought a way to interact with more people. That's when he decided to start teaching, an exercise that compelled him to create Dahl Arts Ceramic Studio as a way to introduce people to his beloved ceramic arts.

"Every time I teach a class or workshop, I learn something," remarks Dirk. Watching his students experiment for the first time or hundredth time in one of his many classes or workshops inspires the sculptor to experiment in his own work, from sculpting faces into pottery to reassembling the broken shards of old pieces into Frankenstein's flatware. The results have landed his work in international juried and invitation exhibitions and even allowed him to open his own personal gallery in Santa Monica, California.

My son enjoyed his one hour ceramics class. He was able to create a beautiful piece to bring home. We were very happy with our experience at Dahl Arts.
