Clay in the Classroom: Session 2 - Handbuilding

Thursday, July 11, 2024


$35 per Student


Sessions take place in the Clay Studio ANNEX Space, located at 1110 Hawthorne St. Unit C, adjacent to our main building.


Clay in the Classroom is great for any clasroom educators who want to bring the engaging and educational fun of clay into their classroom. Whether you are an art educator looking to become more comfortable with using clay, or an elementary educator wanting to bring more educational art experiences into your classroom: these sessions are for you.


These five sessions are flexible in that you can take each session individually, or they are excellent taken together as a course. In these sessions we will learn different essential knowledge and methods for handling clay with young people. Clay is an excellent tool for incorporating art into your elementary classroom for an interdisciplinary learning experience.


In session 2, we will be covering methods of handbuilding with young students. We will cover different methods of building kiln-safe sculptures and pottery, how to use a community creation and cleanup model with kids to encourage cooperation, discuss how to model clay techniques with samples and other resources, and how to manage stages of clay and drying time.


We recommend that students bring a way to take notes, though there will be scratch paper and pencils available. This class will include handling clay to practice foundational skills and test knowledge, but this small project will not be kept.


The maximum enrollment for this class is 15 students.
