Ryan
Michele Wilcox
Ryan, a 10 year old young man, comes to Michele Wilcox's adult online clay class at a craft site called Krafty Kreations. Ryan's mom, Shari, decided to give a clay class a try and found she really enjoyed it. While watching her clay along with the class, Ryan became interested too. Now they clay and learn together. Ryan has become very good as you can see from his reindeer ornament he made recently.
As Ryan puts it:  "I started to like clay when I wanted to do something different than drawing.  I started doing clay by  thinking of my drawings and making them out of clay like my reindeer.  I also did a class with my mom to make a snowman.
I think clay is cool because I get to think of my own ideas."
I think Ryan is on his way to becoming quite the clay artist. I really enjoy inspiring children to explore their creativity. -- Michele Wilcox (ravey1)
