An "Introduction to Wheel Throwing" class is set to start next week. There will be two sessions — one starts Aug. 24 and another Aug. 26. Students may choose either the Monday or Wednesday class option. Each class is six weeks long.

Classes are from 6 to 8:30 p.m. each evening. This class will meet once a week to teach the basics of wheel-thrown pottery.

This class is meant for those who have never thrown on a pottery wheel or for those who have, but need a refresher.

The class is $140 for Ponca City Art Center members, or $160 for non-members.

Students will make, glaze and fire a variety of pottery projects. This class will teach wedging, centering, pulling, throwing basic forms, trimming and glazing. The cost of supplies is included in the class.
