The Katharina-Kasper-School is a school focused on holistic and motoric development in Wirges/Westerwald. We like working with clay as a material in art classes and also arrange many projects and exhibitions with the objects. Due to the competent support of the company Goerg und Schneider in Boden we have the possibility to implement the regional purchase and to have a contact person covering all questions about the material.
The material clay enables our pupils a very special and holistic way of working, and therefore it is very popular as a design element for creative work at school. When working with the hands, modelling, rolling, kneading and smelling the material, many senses are appealed and the pupils can work with it irrespective of their impairment.
It is used both in the basal field and in the creative and more demanding field. The final product is always fired and the pupils can experience how clay becomes a finished "work". When the glazes are applied, this leads again to a special feeling of success.
