Coiled Clay at Holtville High School
Today, we began a two-week program of doing traditional crafts at Holtville High School. We will be working in the three Art I classes. For the next three days, youth will be learning techniques of working coils into shapes. Next week they will try and produce ceramic art using the coiled-clay method.
This will be the last phase of our year-long grant "Exploring our Desert Culture: Hands-on Ceramic Art Program." This will complete the pilot phase of our programming and now the Museum will begin to explore ways to make this one of our full-time signature programs.
