This semester curriculum pack includes everything I use to teach my high school level Introduction to Ceramics course. This course is perfect for middle school art and high school art class.

Included are 6 take-home projects plus, one collaborative project, a visual journal, sketchbook, activities, sketchbook assignments, critiques, and more to help students grasp the three-dimensional concepts for using clay. Through the course they are introduced to pinch pots, building with coils, slabs, adding texture, throwing on the pottery wheel, and more.

You will not have to plan a single day of class for an entire semester with this art lesson plan pack. Lessons in this curriculum are also included in my Introduction to Sculpture curriculum. If you are looking for a curriculum that isn’t solely clay-focused, check it out here.

This lesson plan pack is also great to use in a middle school art class or the lessons could be taught in your own order mixed in with other art courses in later elementary art classes.

In total there are over 400 pages of handouts, lesson plans, PowerPoints, and everything you need to teach for a semester. If purchased individually this would cost $45.00. If purchased all together it only costs $36.00.
