Values and Virtues of Clay

January 28 - 9:00 am

Certificate of Attendance available

Presenter:  Jennifer Azzariti

Based on 3 decades of experiences with children in schools, child-care centers and home-based groups, and work as a ceramic artist, Jennifer will focus on beginnings and relationships, examining children’s initial reactions to—and interactions with—clay.  Examples of short and long-term projects will illustrate clay as a language, and how building a clay vocabulary opens avenues for self-expression and cognition. A combination of presentation and hands-on learning will build your own comfort with clay. You will learn foundational techniques of hand building with clay: wedging,coiling, pinching, and slab building, and leave enriched with specific tips for how to use and manage clay in an early childhood environment.

Location: Blake School, 110 Blake Rd South, Hopkins, MN
