Baltimore Clayworks Community Arts program has partnered with Baltimore City Public Schools Transition Services of the Office of Special Education to create a new, innovative classroom where students explore creative ceramic practices along with developing skills they can apply to future work environments. The youth in this program are between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one and are new to ceramics. Over the past few months they have developed fundamental ceramic skills along with a knowledge of studio maintenance, firing practices and glazing. The students have had a chance to develop their fine motor skills and practice articulating and discussing their creative process in addition to developing a basic understanding of ceramic techniques. Along with the art work, students’ artist statements are on display throughout the space.
Both exhibitions are free and open to the public
