6A The Mountain Messenger, Sunday, March 26, 1995 New Project Lets Kids Experience 'Clay in the Classroom' Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg is sponsoring a new outreach pro- gram this year which takes a traveling pottery studio and resident potter into the schools to present hands-on pottery demonstrations and workshops. The program, which is called Clay in the Classroom, will reach over 450 students In Greenbrler and Summers Coun- ties thls school year. The resource available through this project provide teachers an opportunity to en- rich their students' learning ex- perience through the arts. Through a grant from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, Carnegie Hall pur- chased two potter's wheels, clay tool kits and rolling pins which can be taken to the schools. Schools are charged a fee for the use of the equipment and the potter's time. A resident potter displays and describes various types of pottery, dis- cusses the history, purpose and art of pottery, and demonstrates on the wheel. Students then have the opportunity to experi- ment with clay as they complete a project overseen by the resi- dent potter. Teachers are en- couraged to explore available funding resources to help underwrite the costs of bringing the program to their classes. Anne Tamea of Lewisburg is the resident potter who has been working with Greenbrier County students. She has con- ducted workshops at Lewisburg Elementary, Smoot Elementary and White Sulphur Springs Ele- mentary Schools. Lewisburg Elementary School utilized the project as a spring- board for creaUng a framed ce- ramic tile mural for display in the school. Tamea will utilize Clay in the Classroom resources to complete a "six-week after- school pottery class with stu- dents enrolled in Lewisburg Elementary's after-school pro- gram. "I love kids.
