Clay Wind Chimes - 3D Art and Ceramics Class

And we are back up and running with weekly post again for the 2019-2020 school year. I introduced a new class to my curriculum this year. It is called 
Studio Art Immersion Into 3D Art and Ceramics 7/8 grades
Students participate in 3D art-making experiences that emphasize careful observation, critical thinking, and creative exploration. They are introduced to a variety of media and approaches to making art. Students will learn about the Science of clay and solve technical and creative issues using clay. Students will learn about the History of sculpture as well as basic hand building, glazing techniques and art criticism.  Students will gain an understanding of the tools they are using as well as an introduction to multiple mediums and how they can work in tandem with one another. We will be working on establishing their individual creative confidence through multiple projects. 

These are the finished products of our clay slab roller unit. I have 2 full classes this semester. I will post more of the packing of this lesson in the future. So, stay tuned....
