7th and 8th Grade Art

The teapots are completed! We had a few issues with missed days of school due to weather and some of the work began drying out sooner than we wanted. The students all showed strong persistence and determination in completing their work. The project was split with students sculpting their teapots with a theme and students that wanted a simple, functional teapot. Both approaches offered challenges, technical skills and a higher level of understanding of clay construction methods. After the work is fired in the kiln, the artists will glaze their work and then we will have a tea party in class. The tea party is always one of our favorite events culminating a challenging project, plus we get to have cookies!
