About Day In Clay

Welcome to Day In ClayDay In Clay provides a hands-on art experience.
Programs designed for your curriculum.

Within minutes participants are involved in the process of working with clay and learning about the relationship between art and society. Day in Clay is a learning forum designed to satisfy students, faculty, administrators and Parent-Teacher Organizations.

Students are receptive to an engaging teaching style. We combine education with expertise, in a participatory approach. The response from your peers has been enthusiastic. What’s more, we intend to continue our tradition of providing schools and companies with kiln-fired pieces and a photographic essay of your workshop for a showcase to document your program. References are readily provided, and can speak to my familiarity with the materials, teaching style, and degree of the participant’s engagement.

I provide an Artist-in-Residence philosophy to all presentations. Multicultural and theme-oriented programs are customized to meet your curricular requirements. Everyone is inspired by the vitality of an artist who provides meaning and personal expression to their own work.

In-Service Staff Training 

Staff development includes workshops to enhance your existing curriculum and add a new dimension to the relationship between art, culture, and personal expression.

My teaching experience includes individuals and groups from elementary school to adult classes.  Fellow artists may know me from my teaching and studio management work at the Greenwich House Pottery, Parson School of Design, 92nd St. “Y” and Hunter College.
For years I have taught basic and advanced classes at the Westchester Arts Workshop, White Plains, NY.

Day in Clay is eligible to receive contracts via funding from the Westchester/Rockland /Dutchess BOCES as well as others.  I am available to teach longer-term programs that can involve grant-funded proposals and have successfully assisted school districts in grant-writing.

Please contact me directly at 914-715-1915 | cliff@day-in-clay.com  to discuss how we might enrich your existing arts program, or schedule an informational visit.

I look forward to working with you.
