1st and 2nd graders worked on creating flat clay owls experimenting with texture for the feathers/ details. They also worked on making coil nests with eggs inside. They learned basic clay construction techniques, and experimented with texture and color. String hangers with beads were added to the clay owls after firing so that they can be hung up on the wall.
2nd and 3rd Graders experimented with creating textures in clay. Dried leaves, noodles, beads, shells, etc. were pressed or rolled into the clay resulting in various textures. Students created textured hand prints as well as little bowls that they made into flowers by adding pedals around the rim.
3rd and 4th Graders worked making small hanging bird/fairy houses. Students used a template to create the cone shaped roof and pinch pots for the base and learned construction techniques to attach the two. Lots of time and detail was put into the glazing of the houses.
