Hello all of you,
Some of you I have talked with, some not, but I have a notice I would like to put out to all.
I just started my student teaching - to show I know how to teach - and have been assigned to a ceramics class for 11th and 12th grade students. Their one big paper for this quarter is to find a potter whose work they like and do a short (250 words) report on that artist and their work. Then they have to do a piece of ceramic work in the same, or similar, style. Then they present this report, with their own work, to the rest of the class.
Some of the students didn't realize that people still do ceramic works for sale and as a hobby. I have directed them to this site and several others to see current works and artists. If you would like to help a student - I am not asking that you do - when and if they contact you, could you communicate with them? They have 3 weeks left to finish the paper part of the project, and I am pushing them to start this weekend.
These students should identify themselves as students at George Washington High School from the island of Guam. Several have looked at the site already and have shown an interest in your works.
Thank you, in advance, for helping to further the education of our youth in the age-old art of pottery!
Robert Young, student teacher of pottery
