Do you enjoy crafting with your kids, encouraging their creativity and getting a little dirty? Do you proudly display their projects and have a stash of things they’ve made over the years? If so, consider volunteering for our ceramics program, Create With Clay. It’s a fun way for students to develop creativity, problem solving and motor skills while creating functional and ornamental pieces that could last years! In this enrichment program, students in all grades:
- Learn basic ceramic skills, building on what was learned in previous years
- Learn the process to turn a lump of clay into a glazed piece of ceramic are encouraged to plan and follow directions, adapt, interpret and improvise, all while improving hand-eye coordination and motor skills
- Gain a sense of accomplishment and pride in their creativity & craftsmanship
- Create wonderful keepsakes for both the artists and their families
Each classroom needs a lead, known as a Docent, and Helpers. Docents receive training before leading their class through the process of sculpting and glazing 2-3 projects over the course of the school year. We provide all the training, materials and support needed.
