The class cost includes all materials and the Art Clay World Level 2 Diploma fee. You must have passed the Art Clay Diploma Level 1

The updated Art Clay Diploma replaced the previous Art Clay Certification in January 2013. At Level 2 students complete four complex projects during the three day course and must meet the required standards. You must have attended and passed the Art Clay Diploma Level 1 before attending this course. If you attained the Level 1 with another instructor, you should bring your Certificate with you.

On successful completion of this Level, you will be eligible to progress to the Art Clay Higher Diploma. This level has no classes; you are required to design and make three pieces to set criteria without guidance from a teacher. You will need to wait six months from the date of your Level 1 class before submitting your pieces for the Higher Diploma.

The Higher Diploma holder gets 20% discount on Art Clay products and can teach Level 1 and 2 Diploma classes until the new Teacher’s Certification is in operation. Once running, the Teacher’s Training Course will be a prerequisite for teaching the Diploma classes.
