Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!

Hi, mates! My learners are wrapping up just one of the clay tasks they created and I assumed I’d share. Final calendar year, my initially by means of fourth made clay mugs and it was very easily everyone’s favored clay challenge. When I shared that we were doing the job with clay once more, a handful of weeks in the past, their 1st question was “are we generating mugs all over again?!” I experienced presently planned on it…so they have been enthusiastic to listen to the response. When mugs are comprehensive, we rejoice by ingesting incredibly hot chocolate out of them…so it truly is a total great deal of entertaining. 

This 12 months, I created a movie to share with them. Since I have 30 minute artwork classes, I only showed the pinch pot part and a bit of coil creating for the to start with course. The next class, we did a temporary coil earning reminder and then viewed the portion about creating a tackle. The video clip assisted them issues shoot and get their mugs concluded in just two 30 minute courses!

This week, we begun glazing! They were being informed they could use any two colours of glaze, a single for the within and one for the exterior. They had been to do at minimum 3 coats of their decided on colours and not to glaze the base. When total, they could be part of me at the splatter glaze station!

When my students were concluded glazing, they could help a pal or function on the large banners I made to announce our upcoming artwork clearly show!

We made use of Prang’s Creativeness Avenue Tempera Sticks to color these with.

The glaze we applied are from two corporations and I like them both equally: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. The two are food risk-free and fire to cone 06.
