Hi,


Wow these are so creative and beautiful! What are they done for? do you teach classes? In a grade school?
I taught my grandson (8yrs.) some things about claying, but most of all we just had a great time making surfboards and gorilla's!

Those are all very, very good. I am so impressed. I was nearly blown away by a few of them: Cara's fairy, Chew's magnetic games, Master Hong's Chess set and Nikki's heart to mention a few! Fantastic!

Hello,

Thanks for your compliments.
I am addicted to polymer clay since 1980, I started the clay classes in 1997.
Since then, we had taught hundreds of children in Singapore, age 4years and above.
Now with the help of my wife and daughter, I will like to expand the polymer community in Singapore and impart my skill and knowledge to the children. It is always good to start them young in creative learning, and this is what Picasso said,

" Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain
an artist once he grows up."

Pablo Picasso, painter and Sculptor (1881-1973)

Hi, Linda,

Thanks for your comments. Yes! about Cara, she one of our favourite student, attentive, dedicated, patient and adventurous in claying, spents hours in creating her project. Eventually she will have her own website, just like Chew, http://www.yijun.per.sg .
Master Hong is now so confident and imaginative, that he started to draw his ideas on paper and asking me to guide him creating it in 3d clay model. He joint the play clay class in Feb. 2001, at the age of three over years old, about the same time as Nikki at the age of four years old.
Nikki's knowledge of polymer clay techniques, have help her in creating 2d/3d "mice from Brambly Hedge" picture frame and shading and texturing polymer clay painting. There are many more creative students, in fact through playing with clay it had help many students in their studies, their results shows and good feedback from many parent.

Thanks!
Garie

I think what you do with the kids is wonderful. Too bad there aren't more like you. I think kids teach us alot, especially when it comes to being creative. They don't seem to have the inhibitions and boundaries that so many of us adults do.

BTW, are you the same Garie that made those wonderful little sumo wrestlers? I saw some on a website about a year ago and now I can't find them anymore but it seems to me (if I remember correctly) that it was your website I was looking at.

Hello,

You arefrom Denmark, you share the same Astrological sign as my wife, she does beautiful room boxes and miniature fashions, here is her address, http://www.garieinternational.com.sg/clay/mini-fashion/tresa.htm
and also my daughter's works,
http://www.garieinternational.com.sg/clay/jo_lin.htm
I love your works, I realised that Cernit clay is difficuilt to control if you knead them to many time,
it becomes sticky as it is warmed by our hands. The quality is good, I like its strength and the finish after baking. The technique for using Cernit is, not to knead with your palm but compressed the require lump of clay with your fingures. This will prevent too much heat transfer onto the clay causing it to be too soft and sticky. Alternatively, you can also mixed with other type of clay Fimo, Premo and Sculpey.
As for tmy stundent's Room box, it will be created mostly with Polymer clay, I will update the Mosaic Page.


Thanks,
Regards,
garie

Hi, Pat,

Thanks , nice to hear from you again. Working with kids is full of love and joy. You absorbed their young energetic energy when you teach, interact and learn with them. Teaching them will not makes you feel older mentally and if you want to keep up with their energy, excercise is the best. You will be physically and mentally alert for any creative teaching.

Garie

Hello, Linda,

Maybe, one day, I will go to USA and joint your group in creative polymer clay teaching!
I thought it will be a good idea to pen my skill and knowledge in polymer clay creations, into
couple of books.

Gary, I love the childrens works.  It's so wonderful to see a teacher really expose children to art and their creativity.  Those children are very lucky to have you helping them.

I also applaud your efforts to recycle and teaching children how to see recycled items as something useful.

You and your family do wonderful work in all kinds of ways.

I'm looking forward to finding out for myself.  The local gallery lets me teach pc there, and we're hoping to have some young ones sign up.  They tend to have no fear of experimenting, and I think the "grown ups" could stand to be around that.  Here's hoping it happens soon.  ;)

Hello Garie

Thanks for visiting my website, I'm glad you liked it. I haven't used Cernit for years now because of it's stickyness and I did use the little I had left to mix with my Fimo.
I looked at your wifes creations, she's a very talented lady. The dresses and the roomboxes are all wonderfully detailed, and I simply love her little figurines, especially her brides.
Your daughters lazy kitty is very sweet, too.
I'm looking forward to seeing the updates on your Mosaic Page.

Kind regards
Eva

Yes, it is an interesting quotation, I got that quote from Dyslexic Reader magazine,
I am helping some ADHD and Dyslexic kids in clay works.
After a few years in the clay class, my 13 years old student had excel in her clay works.
She so confident that she able to design and create works on her own.
Here her site which I had help to create, http://www.yijun.per.sg/

Isn't it amazing what finding a talent can do for a child? Whether the talent be sports, academics, claying or music--just being able to be good at something really helps the ego. And, if a child finds their talent and gets recognized for it, they also tend to do better at the things they aren't so good at. Keep up the great (and important) work with the kids!

Hello!

Thanks for your big complimentary message, Cara is so patient and her concentration level is very high, from basic to advance her PC skills have improved within two years. Her proud parent could'nt believe that it was her completed art work. With my daughter's and my wife guidance they created the Fairy skirt with white fabric netting, sprinkles with fine glitters. Been playing with PC for over 20 years, I just loves to share my PC passion and skills with all the kids. I learn from them, they learn from me, we are just a happy PC family.

Garie

Hi, Emily,

Thanks, I agreed totally with your remarks. All the kids in the world are imaginative and clever, as teacher, we must give them guidance and set a direction for them in anything that they are learning.
Understanding the child and their ability is important, some kids might be slow in learning academics, but very talented in music, sports or arts.
Motivate their talents and they will definitely improve their academic learning. Through years of teaching play clay classes, my students becomes very confident and creative in PC claying. We are proud that we are achieving results. Play clay classes have also help to improve many children with their academics in school. Beside the teacher, parent do play an important role by not setting too high a expectation on their kid.

Regards,
Garie

Yes, parents are a critical role in a childs life! Sigh, I've got discipline issues right now with my class and it's no fun. Too bad I don't get to do anything as fun as claying all the time wiht them. I've got a cool paper mache project for the week after spring break though. And, I think I'll make some home-made clay to bring in for them to play with. I'm hoping things improve soon!
