Clay Camp Summer 2015

A few samples of the great creations made by 2-5th grade students and Totem poles made by 6th -12th grade students.  Next week is another week. This allows me to test/explore potential lessons for the 900+ students during the school year.





A student asked me if they could "make anything they want". I know that often strikes fear in art teachers. For me it's not what they make it's more I want them to have past knowledge so that their idea will be successful. For example not to thick or thin. But Erik is a great student and he wanted to create a "claw machine" that you see in arcades.  Pretty cool huh!




I usually add glass marbles to the center before firing but this student didn't want to add any.  She is so meticulous and creates beautiful works.


Love, love this totem bead
