Aprons for the Wheel

My students need the aprons to keep their clothes clean while working on the potters wheel. Clay can splash up on the legs and then they spend the rest of the day looking dirty.

My Students

We are an urban high school which lacks the necessary materials and resources for our students to thrive. Our neighborhood is high poverty and we are considered to be one of the most challenging schools in our area. I have taught here for 15 years and enjoy the creative spirit of my students. Over the years I have had the pleasure of seeing my students discover talents they never knew they had. I strive to expose them to as many diversified artistic experiences as I can.

My Project

In ceramics class it is easy to get dirty. When teenage students get clay on their clothes they get upset because now they have to spend the rest of the day in clothes that look dirty. The clay usually comes out in the wash but can be stubborn and stain some fabrics and colors. When working on the potters wheel students can easily get clay splashed up on their pant legs and it make a mess. Having some aprons for the class will help protect students clothes and encourage them to keep working. They are essential in a ceramics class.
