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 our online signup system.
