"I'm so glad I can use clay whenever I want to, so I can
get all my ideas out." - "E," Grade 5
Sometimes teachers who facilitate learner-directed art studio programs, like ours at CBMS, lament a net-loss in 2-D work. As soon as the "Sculpture Center" and the "Clay Center" open, students seem to move away from drawing, painting, collage and other 2-D media. While this can make filling school bulletin boards a little challenging, it is a net-gain for 3-D thinkers, who are often undeserved throughout their school day.
