The other day I was taken back to a great memory- the first time my hands ever felt the mushy, smooth clay on a potters wheel. This time it was because of my son, Spencer. Since mom is an art teacher, he has the benefit of getting to have this experience sooner than most kids.
Sadly, some never do. I am unable to have all kids do this during class because of space, supplies, scheduling, etc. I tell them, "when I win the lottery we will knock out the exterior wall and build a sun room studio, complete with a full ceramic set-up!" They love that idea. Between dreaming, I do demonstrate the concepts and let them all see how it is done- that is also loved! We do many hand-built projects in each grade instead.
I just thought I would share this cool moment with my blogging friends. I was so happy to see him enjoying it! Oh, memories! Thanks for this "mommy moment."
