Kindergarten Clayworks

What is Kindergarten Clayworks?

Scheduled within the children’s school day, I transport my studio to kindergartens and teach a small group once a week for 4 weeks. For children over 4+, this weekly one hour workshop focuses on problem solving and the constructioning complex work using simple steps.

Workshop projects are inspired by visually stimulating picture books and often include a catchy song. Children are taught not only about ceramic art, but also the importance of listening, new vocabulary words, and how to follow instructions. There is plenty of fine motor skill practice and opportunities to try something that seems very difficult.

Encouraging self-mastery, self-knowledge, and self-esteem is as vital to the workshops as building the clay projects.

Building Self-esteem through Handbuilding

NIILOVILLA STUDIO’s Kindergarten Clayworks/Pottery Club is one of the most unique and engaging extra-curriculars for children I have come across. Suzanne is energetic, funny, and encouraging.
Each four-session club is planned around a central theme such as a favorite children’s book. Throughout the sessions the children not only create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind work of art, but they learn new vocabulary,
practice concentration, strengthen their fine motor skills, build confidence, and become part of a close community with their friends and with Suzanne.
If these qualities are important to you and your child, allow me to warmly recommend Suzanne’s Kindergarten Clayworks/Pottery Club to your family!

What is better than a good picture book coupled with handbuilding with clay?


And if I add a song?? BIG SMILES for everyone!
