7th and 8th Grade Art

We were so lucky with our ceramic work! Some students missed an entire week of art and were very thankful they had wrapped their coil pots up correctly so all their work was not in vain. This week one group completed their face pots, adding all the facial feature and details. The other group is one class behind and is on track to finish construction next week.  Some of the students have thoroughly enjoyed the clay unit and have shown great skill in construction, other students do not embrace the nature of clay. I am ready to put all the clay tools and dust away for a while and look forward to being able to glaze the pots. I thought I would post a picture of one of Kirk Mangus' face jugs that inspired the students to create their own version.

Amazing sculpture by Kirk Mangus
