Teaching Clay in the Classroom with Jeni Hansen Gard – PART 1

In Part 1 of Teaching Clay in the Classroom, artist and educator Jeni Hansen Gard provides a comprehensive guide to setting up a classroom for teaching ceramics at the K-12 level. Because many K-12 art teachers have to teach this complicated subject with little or no ceramics background, this presentation gives a thorough introduction to clay and glaze materials, equipment used in the ceramics studio, classroom safety, and more! Stay tuned for Parts 2 & 3 in the Spring and Summer of 2018!
