We are off to a good start to the semester. This month we have been working on designing our names in 3-D for our sketchbook covers. We have also started a unit on clay. We will be exploring different hand building techniques. We have been brainstorming creatures for one of our first clay assignments. Check out some of our brainstorming ideas below.
This month we have complete two clay projects. We have learned pinch, coil, and slab building techniques. We have also been working on expressive canvas shoe to take on our field trip. Check out some of our finished work below.
During the month of March, students worked on completing a shoe designing project sponsored by The Arts Council of the Valley. Students also had a chance to take a field trip to The Arts Council of the Valley and Larkin Arts to show off their shoes. Below are a photo of their shoes on display at EMS and a couple of examples of their finished tiles from their field trip to Larkin Arts.
This month we have worked with the media specialist to learn about a new tool for our school....3-D pens! Students were able to use these pens to create designer glasses. See some examples below.
