word to schools considering our company...
Ceramics on Wheels is an Interactive
Mobile Arts & Crafts Company. Our creative services provide
inspiration for individual choice, sharing and communicating, as well
as the development and encouragement of creative skills. In addition to
listening skills, we inspire artistic talent and stimulate motor
skills, dexterity, and manipulation skills. This, in combination, will
contribute to all children being part of and participating in a fun,
relaxing group activity, where every child is equal in creating their
own project that they can take pride in and call their own.
methods used to achieve the
educational goals are:
- The children select the project they want to do from a wide variety
Sharing and Communicating - Each
craft is set up so 4 children share paints, glues, textiles,
etc. If we are serving 100 children at the same time, there
are 25 groups of 4 working together.
Developing Creative and Listening Skills
- Our instructors give directions on how to choose the craft (look with
your eyes and touch only the project you will be doing). We also give
instruction on how to do the project and offer tips on how to embellish
or add detail to the project. (Example: You can add polka dots to your
painting by using the back of your brushes.)
Inspiring Artistic Talents - Some
children get frustrated when they perceive that they did not do a
perfect job. We help them to understand that art is not an
exact craft and each individual expresses themselves through their own
eyes and hands. We also encourage them to make changes to enhance their
project by providing support, lessons and guidance.
Stimulating Motor Skills - Each of
our crafts require manipulation and hand-eye coordination.
Concentration is required to be focusing on their task. They would
improve their dexterity and utilize their motor skills.
Self Respect * Pride * Fun - They will finish the activity
with pride, excitement and a positive feeling about themselves. They
have completed another step toward their journey of self-expression
through art and design, colors and washes, gluing and marking.
The indicators of progress include:
- Use of colors properly.
choices of textures and mediums.
understanding of how to create and embellish details.
improvement in motor skills and their dexterity.
What Assessments Methods Are Used:
Children can assess their own progress year after year comparing their
projects with the year before. They can see the improvements they have
made in the use and choice of colors, textures, and mediums in their
finished project from the prior years.
We assess the children’s progress utilizing the indicators of progress
and, most importantly, seeing their smiles.
