318: Kelly Schnorr on effective teaching methods for high school students
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Kelly Schnorr. She is an artist and educator based in the San Diego area where she teaches ceramics at Coronado High School. We talk about time management, effective teaching methods for high school age students, and how to design a studio that can cycle through over one hundred and fifty students each day. In addition to her teaching Kelly makes ceramic sculpture about the consumption and disposability built into modern capitalist societies. You can see examples of her work at https://artaxis.org/kelly-schnorr/. On today’s AMACO Community Corkboard with have the Greenwich House Pottery Residency and fellowship. Greenwich House Pottery is a nonprofit ceramic arts center in the heart of New York City that has been supporting and encouraging a diverse range of ceramic art, and the emerging and underrepresented artists who make it for over 116 years. GHP’s Residency and Fellowship Program has existed since at least the early 1960s when Jane Hartsook invited Peter Voulkos to teach and work in the Pottery, but was relaunched in its current iteration in 2015, when Ghada Amer was invited to be a long-term resident. Applications are due April 1. For more information visit www.greenwichhousepottery.org. Ceramic Materials Workshop is a proud sponsor of the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler.
