Chemistry and Art III -- Creative PartnershipTop of Page

Grants from Mississippi Professional Educators and Donor's Choose allowed the SP art and science classes to purchase two pottery kilns.
Through implementation of pottery making technology, we have been able to add depth to lessons in art and science that was not possible before. Student pottery projects included design and completion of a finished piece of art, while using higher level thinking along with scientific experimentation, research, and writing skills. Students learned the stages in making pottery and the effect on the clay in each stage.  They really enjoyed the project which gave them unique experiences and a chance to be creative while learning.  Future projects include glass working using these kilns and development of a dedicated art and science facility on campus.
Sharon Schaefer teaches Chemistry and Sandra Wise teaches Art.
