…..and sometime "big kids" too!

Today another layer was added to the paper mache projects then onto clay.  We started with pinch pots, then pressed in garden greenery.  After discussing the importance of scoring and wetting any areas needing attaching to the pieces, the students created their own projects.  We discovered through the process, items too thin broke and if pieces were not scored enough and attached with water the fell off.  We managed to  save a few pieces with white glue!  A trip to the garden for samples to press into our clay produced some beautiful results.  In the afternoon, we went outside and sketched trees.  Using our sketches, Wassily Kadinsky inspired trees were created using chalk pastels.
