What Is Clay Week?!

Join us as we spend a day in the life with Wisconsin elementary art teacher Sarah Krajewski. Sarah’s vibrant and energetic personality makes clay FUN! She shares tons of tips to streamline the clay chaos, including how she preps and portions clay, how she manages absent students, and project ideas for all grade levels. Sarah gives us a tour of the behind-the-scenes art spaces, like her back storage room, kiln corner, and hallway displays. Sarah also shares clay self-care with mindful handwashing and her favorite skincare products.
