We use linoleum/vinyl samples that our area floor covering store is
throwing out because that particular pattern is being discontinued.
They are a handy size, stackable and can be either sponged off or taken
to the sink for cleaning.

I knew an art teacher who bought shower curtain liners and used them.
She clipped them to her tables. They are easily hosed off in the school
parking lot at the end of the day.

Hi all,
I use canvas, the clay will not stick to it unless it is really wet.
I buy cheep canvas by the yard and cut it into 12X12" squares. I
have had mine for four years now and they are still working fine. I
shake them off outside after they are dry; use a mask.

You might make table cloths by cutting pieces of Dupont Tyvec House
Wrap. It is plastic fiber reinforced paper like product also used for
FedEX envelopes and envelops used by Netflix, but thicker. Turn the
printed side down to have a white surface on which to work. Google it
for more info. Hems are not needed because it does not fray or tear. It
can be sponged easily to clean it using large car wash sponges. Unlike
canvas or burlap, it does not become dust laden, but clay releases from
Tyvek quite easily. I use smaller pieces for individual project work.
It is ideal for making slabs between two sheets. A cover sheet keeps
clay from sticking to rolling pins, etc. I get pieces from construction
sites when they cut it out of house windows, but if you are covering a
lot of tables you may want to purchase a role of Tyvec at a building
supply store and sell the left-over part of the role to a house builder.
When not in use, roll it up so it curls down next time it is used.

This 4 minute video shows Tyvec on our kitchen table as I have three
kids try a clay joining experiment.

Hi Wendy, I looked over the sites--so much info!! The problem that I
see is that this is just one girl who wants me to run an AP for her. Do
I have to undergo the training to do it?? Could she umbrella her
portfolio in under one of the other AP certified teachers--social
studies, foreign lang., math. Sid

Hi Sid,

You need to submit a syllabus - here's more
information:

There's a great AP Studio Art EDG, too -

Let me know if you have more questions - I work for AP
now (am loving it, but sure do miss my kids)!

:D Wendy
