Students will learn to pinch clay, to squeeze clay, and to roll clay. I will explain how the clay dries and how to bake it according to the type of clay they bring to class. Learners will by the end of class know how to make a coil, an imprint, an animal shape, a bowl, and a pinch pot. Why Clay? 1. It's therapeutic. Simply the act of molding clay in one's hands whether you're a child or an adult can be very calming. Remember those stress balls that were once so popular? Manipulating the clay can help relieve stress or even be an outlet for young children who physically express their emotions. 2. It's an outstanding sensory development activity 3. It's play based learning. You might not realize it, but playing with clay is promoting minds to get busy by thinking about what they're going to create and how they're going to create it. This type of creative play promotes imaginative problem-solving skills.
I have experience working with clay all my life. I worked on the pottery wheel in art class in junior and high school. I have my own pottery wheel in my house. I am certified to teach art in the state of MA. I have a BA and an MA in Sociology.
