My students come to art class every day, ready to dive into their work. They are excited, energetic, and enthusiastic about making art. Our school is a dynamic and welcoming environment that strives to challenge and support our entire student body. My students crave new and dynamic art projects. I strive to incorporate new and emerging technology into my curriculum as often as I can. I want my students to be exposed to as many forms of art as possible, from the traditional to the experimental.
My students love working with clay! They understand how working with clay connects them to people and cultures from the past. Students also love to use clay to express themselves and explore contemporary issues and ideas. The materials I am requesting will help my students experience what it's like to create art in a true ceramics studio. I am offering a ceramics course for the first time in many, many years and our studio is lacking the essential equipment needed for students to have a full experience. Our current art budget allows for the purchase of consumables, but we have not had the means to purchase any new equipment.
With these materials, students will be able to learn how to hand build functional and sculptural pieces of pottery, store and care for their work, and create beautiful surfaces with different glazes.
These essential pieces of equipment will serve students in future ceramics classes for years to come.
