i am a student from new London high school.this is my first year taking ceramics and jewelry and so far i really enjoy it because their is so many opportunities for me to learn, like for ceramics it was a challenge at first because i didn't know any pottery at first but now that i have taken the class i have learned a lot same for jewellery, i have never made jewelry before but this helps me to be open minded and finding different skills . this will help me in life by finding different solutions to a problem and also learning not to be close minded. i would recommend other students to not be afraid of taking one of this classes because you will enjoy it.
