Turning Over A New Leaf In The New Year
To learn more about this project, check out the links below for more details:
These were just too cool not to share on the blog. 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. This is the 3rd year they have created this cross curricular art lesson. 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 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 in the post. Hoping to do one more post with the finished bulletin board for the new year, so stay tuned!
In our department we are always sharing art information. This was really cool video shared by one of our upper school art teachers. have you ever watched it? If not, see just how many art pieces and references you can find. Enjoy ---
