• The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    …students enjoy working with clay, and I love working among them, teaching, helping, and listening. It’s so gratifying to hear them using anatomical terminology when they don’t even know I’m listening.

  • The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    I have seen a dramatic increase in student interest, enthusiasm, and understanding. I even have parents telling me how much their kids love anatomy and using the ANATOMY IN CLAY® Learning System.

  • The Mind Cannot Forget What the Hands have Learned™

    I am not exaggerating when I say that (the) ANATOMY IN CLAY® System has changed my life as a teacher and an artist. It has provided me a way to share with my students a tactical knowledge of the body.

Yesterday at Anatomy in Clay Centers

Eight Pilates instructors and students attended a hands-on workshop
yesterday, led by Anatomy in Clay® instructor Gregory Gonzales. The
group included Amy de Sa, the owner of Pilates Denver and several
members of her teaching staff. In the morning, the group worked on
building the muscles of the shoulder. The session yesterday was a
preview of the class being held on Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. at
