I am an artist without a ceramics background.I did dabble in throwing and building in college...hmmmm that was in 1978 ha ha.
so not I am asked to teach ceramics to a group of students grades 7-9 (classes will be mixed) there will be 8-16 students in the class. I have two wheels , one a kick one electric and one big scary kiln ha ha.
I have learned so much from reading this site.
however I have questions.
I only have one class for 8 weeks so just 8 classes.
what would be a great project for those 8 weeks ? or should I do more than one ?opinions?
What do i absolutely need to have on hand in the studio ? and what suggestions does anyone have for a first time ceramics studio teacher with not much knowledge in the subject?
Thanks so much to everyone in advance. This is an amazing site.
