St. Pat’s has two potter’s wheels and art students learn their use along with many hand-building techniques.

Grade 6

Sixth grade students have individual turns with teacher as helper.

Grade 7 & 8

Students in the seventh and eighth grades have multiple individual turns working on their own or with help as needed.
