I teach students who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Many of the students are still dealing with the loss from the storm and are working on rebuilding. I teach middle school art at a school that where 85 percent of students are considered economically disadvantaged.
I want my students to enjoy and use art as a way to express themselves, and their feelings.
I want my class to be a positive place for them where they can have fun and learn to appreciate art.
Ceramics is a good way to get students engaged in an art classroom, and nothing is more captivating then a pottery wheel when it comes to ceramics. When you think of ceramics you think of the pottery wheel. Having two new pottery wheels will allow my students to learn how to create pottery in the class.
Ceramics and the use of a pottery wheel teaches students valuable skills and helps to develop better motor coordination.
These wheels will allow my students to create works and learn about how to make functional artwork.
This will help my students and create a more engaging and diverse art class.
