Clay Leaves (Art Integration - Cross Curricular)
Cathy, lower school art teacher, worked with 4th grade on a cross curricular unit that involved the study of leaves for the state of Florida. The kids study the lesson in class. Went to art and were able to create the leaves in clay using white low fire clay and Stroke n Coat green glazes. The leaves were bone dry and place in the kiln at 04 to bisque on a slow firing as to not have them crack. Then glazed and placed back in the kiln at 06 for a fast firing to have the completed look in the photos you see above. This is the 3rd year she has done this lesson and each year these get better and better!
We have blogged on this type of lesson before:
Thanks, Cathy for letting me share! These are really cool! 1969
