Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program 7-12th grade students will gain a better understanding of the pottery wheel and/or improve upon their skill level in both wheel and hand built pottery, and outdoor firing of clay, as well as use of a pug mill. Community members who wish to participate in the Community Education classes will also have the same opportunity. We will conduct a post-activity survey asking participants: What techniques did you learn while using clay? What was challenging for you? What did you enjoy the most? Was the artist effective in relaying instructions'? Would you like to take a class like this again in the future?
