When someone discovers Wanda’s studio or her classes, the most common question asked is, “How did you get into the business?” And what amazes them most about her answer is the fact that working with the colourful Sculpey clay was initially a hobby. Working on projects with family and friends, Wanda developed a passion for creating whimsical masterpieces that earned her praise and accolades for her creations. That hobby evolved into a successful career, that continues to keep Wanda enthused and passionate about teaching clay classes to kids and anyone with a creative flare to give them the tools and the confidence to let their imaginations run free.
Now in her 21st year of teaching, Wanda inspires her clay making students to create their own masterpieces using clay and simple modeling techniques. Although she formally teaches children from ages 2 1/2 to 15, Wanda believes her craft can be enjoyed by “kids of all ages”.
In December 2006, Wanda opened the doors to her brightly accessorized clay sculpting studio space, Wanda’s Creative Clay, conveniently located in the Mount Pleasant and Eglinton area of Toronto (view map). The studio holds a variety of sculpting classes for kids including after school workshops, summer art classes for kids and is the perfect spot to host a clay making class birthday party.
Wanda’s Creative Clay is committed to delivering quality, stimulating, children’s art programming in an innovative and creative format.
Having identified a void in the children’s programming market, Wanda Goodman has taken a readily available clay product and has created a unique learning opportunity for children. Wanda brings her creative talent and enthusiasm to children of all ages, and their families. The finished clay products become treasured keepsakes, and in the
process, children develop their fine motor skills and refine their love of art.
