Holy smokes everyone! The seventh graders are doing great and some are already done with their animal. Cylinder details are next. Everyone is in different places on this project (which make it a little crazy) but we make our experience the best we can. Great job students!
Tell the students what you think of their animal projects by posting a positive comment below. Art students, please use an art term to describe (form, texture, balance, unity, shape, line, repetition).
Hello from the Art Room
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
Seventh graders are very focused on their still life drawings. Students are looking for a full range of values, highlights, and shadows. Enjoy!
Looking good sixth graders!
Eighth graders are developing some very nice pottery. These will be finished by Wednesday. More photos to come and be sure to see all the final projects at the end of this week.
7th Grade sneak peak!
Third Quarter Coil Pots
Students began their work on coil pots. They learned about slab and coil techniques and that the first two coils are the most difficult. As the students worked, they unknowingly learned problem solving skills (amount of clay, choice of tools, how to smooth, stacking the coils to form the walls, etc).
On Thursday, student wrote goals. Their choices were: forming the coils correctly, stacking the coils to form the walls, or attaching to make a smooth texture.
Monday and Tuesday are our last days with clay. Check back to see the final products!
