At the NAEA conference in Minneapolis, Carpenter and Sessions asked, "What are we teaching, especially about ceramics?" Art educators are often criticized for leaving out historical context when teaching studio art. In this article, the author offers guidelines, based on national and state art standards, and share the results of teaching about Arizonan architectural context in a ceramics and science class at Arizona State University. The author also shows how the students learned about adobe clay cities in context, especially about archeology, and the organic architecture of Arcosanti.
