My Students

My students are some of the most amazing young people on this planet. However, many come to school uninterested in the institution of school. I have found that the arts and ceramics, in particular, can be the hook that gets young people excited about school. Art is the hammer that shapes our reality.

Many of my students come from extreme poverty.

My students come from diverse backgrounds. I have found that once my students are given a chance and a hook that gets them involved, they can do anything.

My Project

Working with ceramics can change a young person's outlook on life! Working with clay can be the hook that keeps students engaged with their education and life. After my students have created powerful art work they will glaze their ceramic art to really bring them to life. Ceramic glaze is what gives their art work color and individuality.

Working with ceramics can be one of the most powerful experiences in a young person's life.

Unfortunately, clay and glaze cost a lot of money. I have almost no budget for the school year. I always find myself hustling to find the resources my students need. A good ceramics experience can change a young person for the better!
