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

Clay is a magical material that has the power to inspire students to greatness. My students have worked hard on their ceramics projects. Now they are in need of glaze to finish their amazing art works. Ceramic glaze gives clay a finished look and really gets young people excited about their creations.

With your help, my students will be able to finish their ceramics projects and really bring them to life!

Students respond to the vibrant colors and textures that glaze provides. It is an amazing thing to see how excited students get about their art work after they see them come out of the kiln freshly glazed. You can help to inspire a young person onto greatness.
