1 point perspective

8th graders learned about one point perspective. After a few classes of practicing different perspective drawings, students were asked to create their own perspective scene of their choice. I just love what kids can come up with when given the chance and the tools!!

Pinch pot creatures!!

6th graders created ceramic creatures using the pinch pot hand building technique. They had to create the body from a pinch pot, but also were asked to include a slab and coil somewhere on their creature. In our district, 6th grade is the first time our students ever used clay and I think they turned out great!! 

Clay pockets!!

7th graders made wall pockets out of clay. They were asked to make a holder for something that needs a home. We talked about things like needing a place for thier phones, remotes, bobby pins, make-up brushes, pens and pencils and much more. Then, they were asked to think of where it would be hung (in case they wanted to match that room). Next, we started rolling out our slabs to create our wall pocket!!!
