Clay In Education

A Little Knowledge is a Wonderful Thing ...

Through Clay in Education, we strive to convey the love of clay to students of all ages. Local Clay sponsors our artists as they go out into the community, teaching clay through demonstrations, workshops and projects in schools and other venues. Potters can also provide workshops for teachers, so that they are better able to teach clay in their classrooms. Teachers, home schooling parents or organizations wanting more information about the Clay in Education program are encouraged to contact us at education@clayfest.org. Local Clay members can download a Clay In Education application (in Adobe pdf format) by clicking on this link: Clay In Education Application
