Hi, pals! My learners are wrapping up one particular of the clay assignments they produced and I thought I’d share. Previous calendar year, my first by means of fourth made clay mugs and it was easily everyone’s preferred clay task. When I shared that we have been performing with clay yet again, a several weeks in the past, their initial issue was “are we producing mugs again?!” I had by now planned on it…so they had been energized to hear the reply. When mugs are comprehensive, we rejoice by consuming sizzling chocolate out of them…so it really is a entire large amount of enjoyment.
This yr, I made a movie to share with them. Since I have 30 moment artwork courses, I only showed the pinch pot part and a bit of coil building for the initial class. The next course, we did a short coil building reminder and then watched the portion about creating a tackle. The video clip aided them trouble shoot and get their mugs finished in just two 30 minute lessons!
This 7 days, we started off glazing! They ended up informed they could use any two hues of glaze, one for the within and a single for the outdoors. They were being to do at least a few coats of their decided on shades and not to glaze the bottom. After total, they could be a part of me at the splatter glaze station!
When my college students were concluded glazing, they could assistance a buddy or operate on the big banners I made to announce our impending artwork display!
We utilised Prang’s Creative imagination Road Tempera Sticks to coloration these with.
The glaze we employed are from two corporations and I like them equally: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. Equally are food stuff safe and sound and fire to cone 06.
