A Place the the Table

In honor of Election Day, my Ceramics II students were asked to select a social issue that they were passionate about, and visually represent their stand on that issue in the form of plate or place setting. We wanted our opinions to have a “place at the table” – and I wanted their voices to matter. As part of the installation, we invited the 11th and 12th grade social studies classes down to view the work. The classes viewed the work and analyzed and interpreted what issue they believed each plate represented. It was interesting the listen to the students carefully view and figure out what the art was saying to them!

All of this happened before the election results were reported. At least the issues that matter to my students had a place at the table…even if it only lasted a day. I’m so proud of them for being articulate, passionate and generous with their ideas. Here is a link to their commercials. Below are pictures of their work and the installation.

If a Room Could Talk

…this is what Artroom14 would say…


As you can tell from the pictures, my summer vacation wasn’t exactly a picnic. Over the past 2 months, I had holes cut into my walls and have been leaked on twice. And if that isn’t bad enough, I was used as a giant closet and the construction company’s home base as they built a new hallway directly across the hall from me. It’s been crazy.

I used to think that I got a lot of use during the school year, but this summer takes the prize!! I have a new appreciation for how I am treated by 100 students each day! My students know how to treat a room right, and they take good care of me. I missed them a lot this summer.

It’s taken me an extra week to recover from the summer so I can properly welcome my students back to class. I’m ready now! There is one difference though, they changed my name to “11”. That’s ok, they can call me whatever they want, but I’ll always be Artroom14. My best friend, Artroom12, got a new name too. She’s now called “15”. But we’re going to act like it never happened. Gotta keep people on their toes! 🙂

I can’t wait to watch all of the amazing art that the students create within my four walls. I’m honored to provide them with great light, large space and limitless inspiration! And, the good news is, I’ll be air conditioned soon too… which will be really nice.

I’m glad to be back in business! Here’s to a great year!!
