Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jonathan Barnes, who teaches ceramics, printmaking and art appreciation at the St. Pete College Clearwater campus. In our interview we talk about responding to COVID-19 in the classroom and best practices for teaching art online. We also discuss his personal response to the pandemic, which has been to 3D print personal protective equipment for medical professionals in the Tampa Bay area. To find out more information on Jonathan visit www.buyhandmadepottery.com. To download the 3D print file for making face shields visit the resources page at www.talesofaredclayrambler.com.
On today’s AMACO Community Corkboard we have the 28th Annual Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour which is happening May 8-10. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak the tour will be held online with shops going live on May 8th at 10 am.
