First grade just finished their Space Shuttle paintings and now we are pretending that we flew in our rocket ships to a distant planet where we discovered alien life forms…hence, our Clay-lien project!
Day One: We learned how to create a “pinch pot” and sealed them in ziploc baggies to keep them moist for next art class.
These awesome little art stars decided to draw how to make a pinch pot on their free draw paper. Super cute.
Day Two: Adding Clay-lien Details and Features…
I have toothbrushes in water cups that we use for scoring and slipping. The kids learned this technique very well this year. I don’t think we’ll lose any pieces…and the kicker this year was the “hair”. I found a garlic press at a thrift store and it’s been a big hit!
