Mrs. Mary M Ainsworth

This will be my 13th year teaching Ceramics I & II at MCHS and my 16th year of teaching Art. I am really looking forward to meeting my new students! I graduated from Delta State University with my BFA and BA. . I am also a cosponsor of the MCHS Art Club. I am not just a teacher of ceramics but I am a pottery artist myself. I have two beautiful children and the most adorable French Bulldog as well as a recent adopted furbaby from Webster. My Ceramics class is going to be a great environment for students to learn the basics of making hand built ceramic ware. We will be making functional and sculptural pieces in ceramics. If you love sculpting in Ceramics I & II then you should further your sculpting skills and sign up for AP 3D studio next year. I also love to travel and will be taking students and parents on multiple adventures throughout the year. I will be traveling to Athens, Turkey, and the Aegean in the Summer of 2023. I have traveled with students from MCHS for 8 years now. These trips provide wonderful opportunities for students and parents to experience other cultures. Link for the trip website
