Clay time 🙂
I used to be afraid of clay. Last year, every time I went into my supplies closet I would avoid eye contact with my big scary kiln.
My background is in printmaking and photography, so when I started teaching last year, pushing into the 3D world was intimidating for me. But, I knew I couldn’t just skip it, and thank goodness for that because now I just love it!
It’s really neat to see kids who are normally boisterous and rough actually breathing for once, and being so incredibly gentle and focused with the clay. I love this job!
