I was very happy with the results from this year's clay masks. I have over 150 fifth grade students and the variety of styles was clearly evident. Each mask was to have a subtractive quality (clay taken away), an additive feature (clay added to the mask) and texture. The most successful used all three qualtities. We created the patterns using this method http://artfor1170.blogspot.com/2011/04/clay-masks-making-pattern-fifth-grade.html. I'm also really liking the stroke and coat glazes I purchased from Saxs.
