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!!
I am currently in my 7th year of teaching!! I teach art to 6th, 7th and 8th graders at Southeast Middle School. I have taught for 5 years in the Phoenix Elementary School District. I absolutely love teaching art and cannot imagine doing anything else! I enjoy painting in my free time and my artwork has been on display in restaurants and galleries in the Phoenix and Cleveland areas.
I attended Kent State University in Ohio. I majored in Art Education and received two minors in fine art and education. I graduated from High School in Ohio also, and was selected to participate in a professionally oriented Art Program. It was this program and the wonderful teachers that taught it that inspired me to become an Art Teacher.
