Arts Festival Day

Lots and lots of wonderful colorful circles.

We will miss her when she goes back to Western Michigan University.

Small clay tiles made by stepping onto moist clay with interesting treads on the bottom of student's shoes. These tiles will be grouped in a larger square and turned into pavers for the gardens.

Today was Arts Festival Day at NSE.  Every grade level came to the cafeteria for 45 minutes to create beautiful pieces of art for the school. Grades 3- 5 also made large clay beads that we will turn into a totem pole.

  1. Looks like a really fun time! I'm curious how do you turn the tiles into pavers?

  2. Thanks Marcia, Parents in PTA are going to set them in cement frames so I think it will look like 15 tiles by 15 tile squares. It will probably be a lot of pavers steps since we have over 300 tiles! I will take pics and post when they are finished.
