I noticed only one ceramic artist. You really should add a few more American ceramic artists such as:
Peter Voulkos, Rudy Autio, Paul Soldner and Beatrice Wood.

I didn't get very many responses about what you suggest presenting to kids in the way of lessons about American artists (about six reponses). But here they are! I have added quite a bit of info to the list myself, as I am putting together a list for my own use. Hope you can use the info too. It's quite imcomplete at this point... if you add to it, let me know!
