In our ceramics studio that is located on our campus and therefore easy to access for all students we offer weekly ceramic lessons provided by a teacher of the field. Clay is a great medium to stimulate a child’s haptic sense. If children can notice a change in the clay, they are learning that their actions have consequences. Intelligence, imagination, and creativity are engaged and fostered when working with clay.
Furthermore, manipulating a piece of clay develops the child’s large and small muscles, fosters eye-hand coordination and can be a great way to extend the attention span of some children.
