My students need a potters wheel, a decorating (banding) wheel, and 6 pottery bats.
MMA is a community dedicated to making a positive and lasting impact on our environment, our state and our nation. Students are becoming citizens whose actions reflect strong character, ethical values, an awareness of their role as stewards of this earth, and a clear understanding of their own and others self-worth and dignity.
I have the privilege to watch students process through creative blocks and creative breakthroughs alike- to watch them find flow as they discover the techniques and materials best suited to tell their stories.
Our students are inspirational.
A potter's wheel is a big step in growing our art department. The peaceful power of this type of tool is an exciting opportunity for students to experience. Do you remember your first time using a potter's wheel? I sure do!
Centering a lump of clay, directly translates to centering one's focus.
It is not easy, but when the work is challenging, our students will flow-- coming out of the experience capable of things they may have never imagined.
I believe this potter's wheel will provide our students with another avenue for valorization, independence, and awesome creative potential in our community. Thank you for your support!
