My name is Kim Rust and I teach 7th and 8th grade art and ceramics in Winnemucca, Nevada. Currently, the ceramics program is handbuilding only and I have gotten the funds to purchase a wheel or perhaps two of them. I would like suggestions as to what type of wheel would be the best choice for this age group as far as wear and tear and ease of instruction and use by the kids. What would be the preferred wheel-electric or kick wheel? Any comments or suggestions based on experience with this age group would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Kim Rust
