  10 Sessions Junior's Pottery Wheel Throwing and Clay Hand-building Classes

Enriching lessons
The two main techniques
in clay work are hand building and pottery wheel throwing.

Clay hand building involves creating pieces using free form techniques and wheel throwing using potter's wheel.

Junior's are taught basic clay techniques so that they can create whatever they want.

If one doesn't attach the clay pieces well (hand building), they will fall off and when they use excessive force, the clay piece won't turn out well.

Pottery wheel throwing will help the child to improve hands, eyes coordination and enhance creativity.

They will learn to relax when working with clay and disciplines themselves when they learn to handle different types of clay.

Poem by Kaths


Happiness is

The joy you see on children's faces,
The merry laughter that rings in the air,
The feeling of contentment and satisfaction,
But, much more than this.
 
Love is
The sacrifices made for one another,
The tender touch that says it all,
The feeling of being loved and wanted,
But, much more than this.
 
Life is
The development of body, mind and soul,
The ups and downs we seem to face,
The experiences we gain as we age,
But much more than this.
 
Everything is much more than it seems
There's always something greater underneath,
So fear not, go explore all your dreams,
And you'll finally grasp the truth beneath.

 Nurturing the thinking child...

Clay & Pottery Classes
Builds Character!

Working with clay is good for young children as it fine-tunes their motor skills. Working with clay encourages their fingers to move, bend and becomes more flexible because clay is 3 dimensional.

It help a child to coordinate their movements as what they sees will be the same as what the clay is shape.

Nurturing the thinking child...
 

 Your Kid's can, if you let them think they can.

I believe in bringing my dreams to life...

This is my inspiration.

Have you ever walked by a low fence and wondered why the dog inside will run to it, but won't jump over the fence -- no matter how many times he runs to it barking and growling?

The odds are the dog was placed inside the fence as a puppy and grew up seeing that fence as being higher than it is. The puppy learned that no matter how many times he tries -- it's just too high.

Over time he gradually tries less often and eventually quits trying -- knowing that he'll never clear that fence.

The same thing happens to our children over the years. When they try to reach a goal and fail but still muster up the courage to try again and fall just short of the mark -- gradually that fence becomes higher in their minds, than it really is.

It's a gradual insidious process and they seldom notice it's happening. Over time that fence becomes more imposing and their efforts become a little less enthusiastic. They start building fences in their mind just like that little puppy.

When our kids begin a new goal with so many doubts thinking that they won't be able to reach it, so they don't and start thinking to themselves; "I knew I couldn't do it".

Our kids doubts become a self fulfilling prophecy. It doesn't have to be that way.

Failures and limitations are nothing more than fences they've built in their minds. The cycle can be broken, if they learn to stop thinking about past failures, concentrate on the here, now, and move on.

We believe in bringing our dreams to life...

This is our creation.

Making Dreams come true... 

You see things and say: Why?
I dream things that never were
and say; Why not?

Two monks on a journey

As they approach a small river, they notice a young woman -- afraid to cross the river, the elder monk puts her on his shoulders and carries her across, sets her down upon reaching the other side and continued his journey.

Further down the road, the elder monk turns to his younger companion and asks what's bothering him and he said; "You've broken your vows by touching that young woman."

The elder monk replied;
"Yes, but I let her go when I had finished helping but why you are still carrying her around."

Our kids, like the younger monk, may carry around actions of their past that set limitations ingrained into their young mind for a reason that can subconsciously hold them back.

Parents need to impart knowledge with creative thinking values to our kids before they start building fences in their mind like that little puppy; before the fence becomes more imposing and their efforts becomes less enthusiastic as they move on in life.

It's a gradual process that parents seldom notice it's happening--setting the height limit of the fence and allowing past actions that are ingrained into our children young mind.

Children need to be nurture, to learn and begin every task as if it were impossible to fail and to let go and move on.

 
 

 

Wisdom of Children
===================

  • When your dad is mad and asks you, "Do I look stupid?" Don't answer.
     
  • Never tell your Mom her diet's not working.
     
  • If you want a kitten, start out by asking for a horse.
     
  • Felt-tip markers are not good to use as lipstick.
     
  • Don't pick on your sister when she's holding a steel ruler.

 
 

Look for a new Doctor

Her five-year-old daughter Lina was unusually quite and the worried mother took her to see a doctor.

The kindly doctor always try to put kids at ease by naming one part of their anatomy while pointing to another.

The Doctor touches Lina left ear, cover its opening with his finger and said; can you still breath easily when I cover-up one nostril?

Lina turned to his mother and said; "Mom, I think we should look for a new Doctor, this one can't tell the difference between a ear and a nose."

Never underestimate a child creativity and intelligence.
