Sculpting more than just lives at Diamond Ranch Academy

The Sculpting & Pottery Club is a brand new addition to Clubs & Activities on boy’s campus this season. The boys are learning basic pottery and sculpting skills and techniques on newly purchased pottery wheels. They will also be firing their work in the brand new kiln. After each segment of the club, students will turn in their work and the boys have decided that one piece from each of them will be auctioned-off for charity.

Introducing Arts & Crafts

Arts & Crafts is one of our new clubs that just started. Right now, the girls are working on drawings of their favorite animals. They will present their finished work to the girls’ campus later this week. Once the club receives their recent order for more clay, they will begin working on snake pottery and some other fun sculpting projects. Another fun project the girls have to work on is pottery. Two pottery wheels, with all the accessories, were purchased for this club. The girls also recently made personalized bags to keep all of their work in.
“We are learning how to throw pottery. We are working with an experienced sculpturist who is teaching us how to center the clay on the wheel.”  -- Trinity

Check out these aMaZiNg pictures of the GOLF CLUB!!!

Golf is a completely new club that everyone is excited about! Each weekday during club time, the boys in the Golfing Club load up in the van and head down the road a short distance to a brand new golf course. It is located on beautiful terrain. The club leaders plan on teaching these new golfers the basics: Proper swing technique, how to grip the club, etc. -- Keegan, Media Club
“I have never played golf before. I really enjoy this club because I am getting to learn the sport of golf. It is also very relaxing.” -- David
