Our Artists want to learn about clay and pottery and to throw on the wheel and to use "the big scary OVENS" (kilns). Our classes and projects are primarily 2-d so the ceramic unit is going to be AWESOME! A lot of my students thrive with drawing and drafting and painting, others do not and need to work with their hands.And sometimes they verbalize that they feel like "FAILED" "ARTISTS". OH NO! Having them throw on the wheel and make a pinch pot or mug that they can use or gift to a friend or parent will increase their confidence like 10000 times and thus, they will be happier and better school citizens and (future) world leaders. This is the official standard we will use as our guiding principle for this project. Advanced art 8th VA:Cr1.8.1 Document early stages of the creative process visually and/or verbally in traditional or new media. Ceramics is such a process oriented medium so it will be fun to watch the kids organize their thoughts throughout the art-making!
