Event description

Description

Let’s play and talk about clay!

This hands-on and interactive workshop is aimed at the research, experiences, and benefits found when Clay is introduced clay into the programs. Photos and pedagogical documentation on the clay explorations in the programs are included in the presentation. Participants will have the opportunities to gain practical ideas and discuss implications in their own practice. Throughout the workshop, we will continue to reflect on the question, "how do children make meaning through their interaction with clay?”
