Clay - a valuable material in the Katharina Kasper School

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.

Experience has also shown that pupils with challenging behaviour often become calmer because of the material clay and can thus get into a creative design process either with or without support. It can support the concentration and provide the students with intensive perceptual stimuli because of the tactile experiences.

This is how very different pieces of clay art are created at our school, which we also exhibit in the display cabinets in the auditorium or which go on a journey to exhibitions.

Clay, a material from the Westerwald, finds its place in school and is highly valued by the school community.
