Hello, mates! My college students are wrapping up a single of the clay tasks they made and I considered I might share. Last calendar year, my first by means of fourth established clay mugs and it was conveniently everyone’s favored clay job. When I shared that we have been doing the job with clay once more, a few weeks ago, their first problem was “are we generating mugs yet again?!” I experienced now prepared on it…so they had been energized to hear the answer. Once mugs are total, we celebrate by ingesting hot chocolate out of them…so it’s a complete ton of fun.
This 12 months, I created a movie to share with them. Simply because I have 30 minute artwork courses, I only confirmed the pinch pot portion and a bit of coil building for the first class. The second class, we did a quick coil creating reminder and then viewed the part about building a tackle. The online video helped them hassle shoot and get their mugs completed in just two 30 minute lessons!
This 7 days, we started off glazing! They ended up instructed they could use any two shades of glaze, just one for the within and 1 for the outdoors. They were being to do at least a few coats of their chosen colors and not to glaze the base. When entire, they could be a part of me at the splatter glaze station!
When my college students have been concluded glazing, they could support a mate or work on the massive banners I established to announce our approaching art present!
We utilized Prang’s Creative imagination Road Tempera Sticks to colour these with.
The glaze we employed are from two companies and I like them equally: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. Both of those are food items safe and sound and fire to cone 06.
When introducing clay to your students, you might obtain this video exciting to share:
