All Master's Theses

In the opinion of the investigator, the experiment reported reinforces the hypothesis that greater imagination and creative ability can be fostered in the nine-to-eleven year-old through giving primary consideration to the developmental needs of this age group when presenting a medium. Also that a systematically structured approach to the use of the medium facilitates the child's creative growth and makes progress an unavoidable issue.

These artistic requirements remove the piece of furniture from the realm of neutrality and tastefulness and expect the viewer - user to experience visual communication.

Additional study involved the experimentation of glazes on the clay bodies with the hopes of finding some to fit. The factors determining the use of clays that are economical and easily accessible to Central Washington College of Education were also considered.
