Check out what we have made!
Fifth Grade scholars hand-built these AMAZING, functional mugs!
Students used a slab to form the cylinder and a coil for the handle. After a lot of scoring (scratching the clay with a tool), adding slip (clay glue) and refining details, their pieces were fired in the kiln. Next, we glazed, using Mayco Stroke & Coat Wonderglaze, and fired one last time.
MOVEMENT + ART
Can you believe no paintbrushes were used to create these masterpieces?!
Second grade students used MOTION to make their marks. They spun, rolled, pushed and swung different art mediums!
First, scholars used markers and CDs to create spinning tops. They spun, spun, and spun filling their paper with spirals and lines. Then they used tempera paint and marbles to shake, rattle and roll.
Fourth grade students studied contour lines to create their self portraits. First we had a photoshoot where students had their photos taken. Then with Sharpie, they traced their photo, creating a mirrored image on the back of the photo.
Students transferred their drawing to a plastic sheet and used acrylic paint. The background were made by marker prints.
