As a part of our final project, the students took a field trip to Art Centro, a ceramics studio and art gallery located at 485 Main Street in Poughkeepsie. Their assignment was to envision themselves in their future career and identify an element that can be used as a symbol to represent that role. They were then taught how to use clay to create that symbol. The staff at Art Centro worked with each student teaching them how construct their “vision board” element, paint it and then it was fired and glazed. Although it was the first time working with clay for all of the students, they did a good job with taking direction and being creative.
