Hello, mates! My college students are wrapping up one of the clay assignments they designed and I imagined I might share. Very last 12 months, my 1st through fourth created clay mugs and it was conveniently everyone’s beloved clay task. When I shared that we ended up doing the job with clay once again, a number of weeks ago, their to start with query was “are we creating mugs yet again?!” I experienced presently planned on it…so they were being excited to listen to the response. At the time mugs are finish, we rejoice by ingesting very hot chocolate out of them…so it’s a complete good deal of entertaining.
This yr, I established a video to share with them. Due to the fact I have 30 moment artwork classes, I only confirmed the pinch pot portion and a little bit of coil generating for the to start with course. The next class, we did a quick coil generating reminder and then watched the part about making a tackle. The online video served them difficulty shoot and get their mugs concluded in just two 30 minute courses!
This 7 days, we started glazing! They had been instructed they could use any two hues of glaze, just one for the within and one particular for the exterior. They had been to do at minimum a few coats of their decided on shades and not to glaze the bottom. After full, they could join me at the splatter glaze station!
When my college students were being finished glazing, they could assist a friend or work on the huge banners I created to announce our future art show!
We utilized Prang’s Creativity Street Tempera Sticks to colour these with.
The glaze we used are from two organizations and I like them both: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. Both of those are food safe and sound and hearth to cone 06.
