3rd and 4th Grade Art
This week was a bit of a catch up week for our ceramic project. The days off came at a difficult time for a unit involving clay, but the students work hard to finish their pieces so they would not risk getting too dry. I was impressed with the care and detail they added to their work and look forward to getting the kiln loaded so we can glaze the boxes. While we are waiting for the work to completely dry, we began our next unit. The students are learning about landscapes, horizon lines, how to create the illusion of depth and distance using different values and how to blend pastels. This unit will be a shorter 2 or 3 week project and they have already made great progress on the initial application of colored chalk pastel.
