1st and 2nd Grade Art

We missed one day of art this week for Presidents Day, but began the glazing process on our Kirk Mangus inspired face cups. This project is the direct result of our recent field trip to MOCA Cleveland in January. The students did an excellent job constructing their pinch pot cups and we had a successful firing of the kiln with no mishaps or breaks! The glazing process is a wonderful mix of science and art with the end result nothing short of wonderment. The students are always surprised when the light blue gray glaze "paint" turns into a beautiful rich blue when it is fired in the kiln. I am equally excited when I open the kiln for the glazing firing. I can hardly wait to see what your children chose for the glaze colors.
