What makes The Clay Teacher® "in school fieldtrip" different from those offered by others in Edmonton?
Experience - Each workshop is led by two teachers with a combined fifty years of clay working experience. Cindy Clarke and Jim Willett bring a unique team approach to the presentation for your children.
Professional Skills - From simple hand building clay projects with three year old children to advanced learning with senior high students and adults, The Clay Teacher offers the only program of its type in Edmonton presented by professional potters.
Education - It's not just about making "keepsakes" or painting trinkets. We introduce students to clay and the art creation process. We help them see and work in three dimensions.
Freedom to Create- We offer over 100 hand sculpting clay projects for elementary students and can design an in school fieldtrip workshop to meet your goals. Compare the size of the projects! We always bring more clay than required so students have plenty of creative freedom. Clay is "cheap like dirt"!
Choice - Air dry or kiln fired? Do clay projects need to be fired? No they don't. Projects can be air dried and remain at the workshop location, or can be brought back to our studio for kiln firing and return in three weeks. The choice is yours! Many Teachers have chosen to keep control of their projects and over 10 000 air dry projects have been created since late 2010 with many repeat customers. Curious about air drying pottery clay sculptures? Read The Clay Teacher Blog where Cindy discusses the subject in depth. Check out this link for work by a renowned artist, Kristin Morgin, all in unfired clay!
