We waited. We watched. We wondered. Then, as momentum is wont to do...

So much has happened so quickly in response to COVID-19, not the least of which is that many teachers are having to shift their studio classes to online formats. Studio Potter has made our archive available to those in need of resources for three months. If you have not yet taken advantage of this resource, you need only email membership@studiopotter.org and make the request. [UPDATE: We offered free memberships to educators for March, April and May of 2020. This offer has now expired. We encourage any educators to purchase a membership and gain acccess to Studio Potter. Memberships begin at just $5 per month] So far, Studio Potter has given access to over 10,000 students at over 250 schools and the requests continue arriving daily. We were also planning a discussion panel at NCECA to share information about the Grants for Apprenticeships Program. We are working in concert with NCECA efforts to bring you the discussion remotely in the coming weeks. Please, if you aren't already, follow Studio Potter on Instagram and Facebook to stay abreast of our updates.

Many others have made resources available online, so many, in fact, it overwhelms the mind. We thought it might be helpful to aggregate some of the resources in one location. SOME, because trying to deliver them ALL would be like mopping the ocean – it seems there is always more water. Most of the lesson plans that follow are, of course, ceramic-centric. Likewise, the links to educational resource banks do not solely address ceramic education as many educators have the burden or gift of teaching across material  and conceptual boundaries. One last thought to frame what follows, please share your knowledge of resources with educators who might not be seeing the avalanche of information fall on social media. Yes, some individuals have made a conscious choice to remain as digitally free as possible, while others simply might not have access for a variety reasons.  

Each resource listed below is embedded with links to the artists' website and a view only version of a complete lesson plan. Most of the lessons may be easily modified
