Teacher's Edition

Bringing the ancient art of clay to the contemporary classroom.

Experience Clay, a contemporary guide to clay techniques, tools, and traditions, is as inspirational as it is practical. Supported by clear, step-by-step illustrations, this comprehensive resource details a range of handbuilding and wheel-throwing techniques and is a wonderful source for exploring ancient traditions and historic innovations in the world of ceramic art. From the properties of clay to decoration and firing, all information presented is shown against a rich backdrop of dynamic professional and student work.

In addition to providing a full-sized student page, the annotated, spiral-bound Teacher's Edition is designed to help tailor classroom instruction to the unique classroom needs. A menu of easily identifiable icons and descriptive headings help in selecting the teaching tip, learning strategy, or background note that suits the lesson best. Topics include:

  • Art History background notes help place work of art in its historical and cultural context
  • Vocabulary building strategies
  • Design extension
  • Interdisciplinary connections
  • Tips for using the opening image offer observation oriented activities to introduce the chapter and jumpstart the learning process.
  • Internet connections
  • Correlated to the National Visual Arts Standards
