Glazing in the Art Room
Students have started glazing! Excitement and nervousness abounds as students attempt to apply the final elements (color & contrast) to communicate their pottery vision.
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!
