4th Grade Clay Tiles

December 14, 2011

Happy Holidays everyone!  I have been super busy trying to upload as much work as possible to Artsonia.  It is the perfect place to use your child’s artwork as a holiday gift!  More importantly, I want to encourage everyone to visit and comment on your child’s artwork!

Fourth graders spent a couple of days working in clay.  We learned how to roll out slabs of clay and then cut out a shape.  The kids were then allowed to use texture plates, stamps, and drawing sticks to decorate the surface.  We poked holes into the top and fired the pieces.  Fun colored glazes were added after and fired again.

To complete the project, we used buttons and colored wire to allow for the tiles to be hung.  Most of the kids used inspiring words or names to decorate and will make any room feel special!
