Here's another blog entry from Carter Gillie on ideas for teachers of pottery and ceramics.  Many of us have taught or currently teach at the elementary/high school levels, in community studios, or college/university level.  I especially like the idea of a class in Copying the Masters.

Excellent article!


I teach at community college level and emphasis is usually on techniques as most students want the piece to 'work' in practical terms. This means that I sometimes 'forget' to draw attention to the broader, richer aspects of the clay 'art' medium.


A 'Copying the Masters' class, a long and well respected tradition in painting, will now be scheduled for mid-term.


Thanks bciskepottery for the link.
