Clay Program

Welcome to Van Meter’s Clay program

We are very fortunate to have a volunteer run clay program that encourages every student in our school to create at least 2 projects during the school year. The students learn several hand-building techniques that include coiling, pinch pots, rolling slabs, attaching clay, adding textures and using several tools. They design beautiful projects, work with their hands, and have a lot of fun learning about art.

Each classroom needs one clay contact person who coordinates with the teacher and at least 4-6 other parent volunteers.The contact person also reserves the clay room on iVolunteer at: http://lvm.ivolunteer.com/clayprogram

Below are detailed instructions on grade level projects for the fall.

Please contact clayprogram@vanmeterhsc.org if you have any questions.
