Clay in the Classroom: Session 4 - Interdisciplinary Clay

Thursday, August 1, 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 topics 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, or for enhancing your art classroom.


In session 4, we will discuss ways that clay projects can enhance interdisciplinary units with subjects including: History/Social Studies, Native American Studies, Math, Science, and can even promote social emotional learning. We'll also discuss how clay, both ceramic and other man-made variations, can be used to create learning supports like dioramas and models. This session will not cover how to build or glaze projects with ceramic clay.


We recommend that students bring a way to take notes, though there will be scratch paper and pencils available.


The maximum enrollment for this class is 15 students.
