During art, first grade is exploring sculpture-making. We're reviewing texture and designing animals both imaginary and not. For many students, this will be their first experience with clay that will be fired in a kiln and glazed!
As we wait for our clay pieces to dry enough to be fired in the kiln, we are also making coil animals with air dry clay. Coil is a technique used for centuries across many cultures during many periods of time- we're truly loving the experience !
