Artillery AG : Mindful Ceramics

Artillery AG : Mindful Ceramics 5.0 (8)

In the summer of 2009 Artillery AG blossomed in the Mission district of San Francisco. Founders Iván Lopez and Alexa Treviño set out to establish a creative gallery and studio that would embody Nature, Familia, and Cultura.

Artillery AG is home to many art forms that we are able to connect with. Creating with clay, earth, paint, and photography.

With clay and flora, we are able to honor our Pachamama. We connect with our earth each time we mold clay and tend to our plantitas. Giving thanks to the Ohlone people for allowing us to be on their land.

Through photography, we reflect on the times and also our ancestors in each moment. Reminding us of the beauty we have within ourselves and that of our community, immortalized with light.

Painting is an act of resistance. You can see the stories of our people painted on the walls of the Mission. Each color expressing our vibrant cultura. Art is the universal language so powerful we can understand each other with just a brushstroke.

At Artillery AG we prioritize being a safe space for our QT and BIPOC Community. We will not accept hate in our space.

We welcome you to join our creative familia.

Art is good for you homie!

Wheel Throwing Class: Try-me One Time

Awesome class! Learned how to throw the clay on the wheel and some basic techniques for centering the clay. Definitely harder than It looks but also a very great intro class for beginners before deciding to continue with It. You don’t take anything home but you’ll find there isn’t much to take home depending on your skill level lol. Great time spent very enjoyable, thank you!

Ceramics Class: Sculpt a Garden Vessel

This was such a beautiful experience! It made my birthday extra special to have this mindful moment with friends around nature and then to create something unique with my hands. Our instructor, Lyss, was amazing in every way and made our class fun and relaxing! I will definitely want to try more classes in the future.

Ceramics Class: Sculpt a Garden Vessel

I purchased this class for a bachelorette event. We absolutely loved it! Our instructors were incredible and so helpful. We loved the mindfulness meditation at the beginning of the class. It really helped us release things that would have impacted our weekend and were able to focus on celebrating with our Bride to Be. Our instructors were amazing at showing us different sculpting techniques and just  + more

Ceramics Class: Sculpt a Garden Vessel

Our teacher Alyssa was amazing. She was so calm and zen and we just loved her positive attitude. She taught us a lot and gave us many ideas. My friends and I had such a great time. We work in high stress environments and this was definitely what we needed on a night out together. Thank you!

Introduction to Wheel Throwing Course

Amazing class. Instructor is very knowledgable and friendly. The lessons were thorough and encouraged me to learn more about the world of ceramics. Materials were ample and responsibly sourced and recycled. Can't recommend this course and this studio enough.

Ceramics Class for Mindfulness

We had such an amazing time in this class. The mix of mindfulness and pottery was the ideal experience for our group of friends. Ivan and Kelly encouraged and guided us through a wonderful session with clay, teaching us vital techniques and helping us get in the flow and relax.
