Class Experience

Students will learn to pinch clay, to squeeze clay, and  to roll clay.
Learners will by the end of class know how to make a coil pot, a hand (or paw) print, a slab pot, 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 been working on a pottery and with clay when since middle school age or before.  I attended a Visual and performing arts school in Sarasota FL which is still there to this day.  I was in the first pioneering class to be created at the school.  We had 3-4 pottery wheels and it was my most favorite class. Later as an adult when I lived in Miami FL.  I purchased my  own  pottery wheel and have made many things on the wheel. I taught each of my three daughters on the wheel from a very young age(4, 5, or 6).  
30 min of class time and any time after class that the student wishes to continue to work with their clay.
supply list: small bowl of water (used to moisten clay) a pencil a rolling pin or smooth glass jar A dry rag (to wipe hands or counter top if needed) A damp/wet rag (to wipe hands or counter top if needed) Clay: self hardening clay or air dry clay in any color. It usually comes in black or white. Any local art or craft supply store will carry self hardening clay. It is also sometimes called air dry clay. I am going to use a black color. I bought my clay from Sheffield Pottery in Sheffield MA. There is an on-line store if you need to order on-line. https://www.sheffield-pottery.com/default.asp?msclkid=bc3ee05b1f8a199028efbe9540e372db&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=**LP%20Branded%20-%20A&utm_term=Sheffield%20Pottery&utm_content=Sheffield%20Pottery Small objects: some leaves, sea shells, or buttons to make imprints bring small magnet to attach to the Clay(snail project)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
None. Optional: parents can help their students by sitting next to them off camera or just be nearby in case the student needs hands-on help. Camera angle:  for the clay work try to angle your camera on the table where you are working so I can see what you are doing and I'll do the same.
