Getty Villa visitors can get hands-on in the clay lab and discover how artists have transformed earth and water into beautiful ceramics for thousands of years. Partipants can use the potter's wheel, mold a Medusa, and shape a handle to decorate a communal vessel.

LA-based ceramic artist Wayne Perry guides the experience and shares what his artistic practice has in common with the ancient Greeks'. This program complements the exhibition Underworld: Imagining the Afterlife.

The activities are free but advance timed tickets to Getty Villa are required. Reservations are available online or by calling 310.440.7300.

On-site parking is $15 per car or motorcycle.
