Sixth grade students discussed the power heroes have on influencing life choices. Each student decided who they considered were their heroes. Their hero had to be a positive influence in their life. Many chose parents, siblings, and athletes. The students sculpted their heroes from clay, then used tempera paint for color once fired.
Great job sixth grade!

Grade 4 Coil Pots

Fourth grade students created these fantastic pots from clay using well-crafted coils.  In one art class, they sketched designs for the overall “look” of their pot and practiced sculpting using modeling clay.  In a second art class, they used white clay to combine the coils for their sculpture.  After the pots dried and were fired, the students selected no more than two glazes to paint the surface.  Limiting the color palette helped accentuate the detail of their sculptures.  I think this project produced great results!  Awesome job 4th grade!!
