Clay Projects are BUSTING OUT all Over

The dust has not settled yet, in the Art Lab.........literally! Clay dust is everywhere as we are building clay things in every class. This is such a perfect way to teach the element of FORM and how it differs from SHAPE. I will have to say that this is probably the MOST FAVORITE medium, with which the students like to work. Here are some of the projects that have been done so far: 2nd - slab birds 3rd - apples, wild cat faces, blue bowl, pies 4th - slab plates 5th - sea turtles, masks

Learning about Organic Shape in Kindergarten

These cute little alligator paintings were done with Kindergarten students. We talked about geometric and organic shapes, and then practiced by painting gators. They had such fun with this. Afterwards, we embellished with oil pastels and gave some detail to our works of art.

Where have I been??????

Sorry to all of you who check me out on a regular basis. I have been so busy that I have not let you know about what I have been doing. Going back to being the sole Art Teacher at a school of 1300 students has not been as easy as I thought. Therefore, I have not been blogging regularly. Well, get ready....... a lot of new posts are coming your way.
