I almost forgot to show off some of my students' work from this summer. Here are a few of my favorite images taken throughout the summer at the art center where I teach.
Stories on Clay- students (ages 9-14) made a series of ceramic vessels (using the new studio slab roller!) and decorated them with their own drawings using decals.
Hands on Art History- Students (5-8 yr olds) explored a classroom cave (ok..I had some serious fun making this), learned about ancient cave paintings and made their own. One of my favorite classes ever.
Garden Sculpture- Students (5-8) made a variety of projects out of clay, including these oh-so-cute garden insects. They are hollow forms with hi-temp kiln wire legs/wings/antennae. They were finished by placing them on stakes so they could be placed in the ground outside.
