My Students

I teach art to kindergarten through fifth at a rural elementary school. The school is a Title 1 school and many of the students come from low income families.

I was able to get some clay last year and the students loved it!

Some of the students never had the opportunity to experience clay before and it was amazing to see how much joy they got from manipulating the clay into some pretty cool art pieces, like pinch pot bobble head animals or pinch pot monsters.

I was very sad to find out that there was not enough funding this year for more clay to do a clay unit this year. I am hoping that through this project I will be able to get enough clay for each student to be able to create one clay artwork. I have had countless students ask me are we going to be able to use clay this year, I would love to be able to tell all of them yes!

My Project

Clay is an great way for students to see art in a different way. It is great for motor skills, and for teaching the element of art of form. Clay is also a great tool for kids who struggle with art making because it is a much more forgiving medium than others we work with in the classroom. Also if a student messes up it can be reused where other art materials may be a little trickier to reuse. But by the end of the process the students have a really nice art piece that will last a long time.
