4th Quarter Pottery
Students are working furiously to finish their pottery as it is drying out with our spring break and weekends. I truly think these students are working hard and at their best. Enjoy the photos below.
Students are working on painting and drawing in between clay projects. Eighth graders are learning about color theory and mixing intermediate colors as well as the relationship between the color families. Consistency when painting is key! Students in sixth grade are working their way through a zentangle animal project. Drawing the animal outline is first. We will be learning about zentangle patterns next.
Start of the Final Quarter
All students have been involved while working with clay. Enjoy the fantastic projects starting to form!
Overview: Sixth grade students have just finished their cultural pinch pots, seventh graders are building their cylinder for the animal pottery, and eighth graders have finished their clay pendants which help them develop their clay mug.
We had a great time this past Thursday! Students had fun teaching parents and siblings how we use the art room when working with clay. Enjoy the photos below!

Final Pottery Designs
Students this quarter have made the best of all the interruptions (snow days, Iowa Assessments, and late starts/early outs). Check out their fantastic projects!
Photos below are of students working on their projects. They really do a nice job of cleaning up and finishing their projects.
Quarter 3 Pottery
Quarter 3 pottery has begun! Students are working on pinch pots, pendants, animals, and will be starting clay mugs.
Sixth grade students are learning about details in connection to history as well as working their way around the middle school art room and the tools provided. Eighth graders are discovering their pottery skill strengths and weaknesses to create the best clay mug. Seventh grade students are working on animals and I will update with photos soon.
