clay character bowls!

I am so excited to see all of these clay creations painted!
As I've said before, I never really taught clay techniques. I didn't have access to clay at my other schools. With boxes of clay ordered by the previous art teacher at my new school, I've taken the opportunity to teach a simple lesson, sure to be successful for many. We are creating character... or monster, or animal, or unknown something or others... out of pinch pot bowls. The timing has been great too. With standardized testing happening over the next two weeks, its been a nice release for the kids to be manipulating the clay. Seriously, kids have been quiet, content and very creative!

All wrapped up after class 1
