2nd Grade students have been talking about Color Families and artist mediums. In this project students had to show their hand through the use of color. They also had to use a variety of mediums including: watercolor tempra, oil pastel, crayon, maker, sand, glitter, pompoms and wax pastel.
As we approach the end of the year I am trying to give the 6th graders some freedom on what they want to create and how. So students who finished their perspective drawings early had the chance to move on to a Flag drawing. I asked them to try to make it look like the flag was moving with their lines and their use of color, but the size of the paper and the medium were their choice.

These are some of the completed line drawings.
In this project the 6th graders learned about slab construction clay. So students had to flatten their clay into a sheet of clay and then they cut a circle bottom and a long strip to form the side of the cup. We used a pop can wrapped in paper towel inside the clay to help form our vessels. With slip and score students were able to secure their clay cups and then the decorated them with a face of some kind. Once the clay was fired we glazed these pieces to make them food safe.
