2nd Grade Clay Owls


Owls are born in the art room! Original inspiration came from our study of Picasso and his pet owl!


We created oil pastel owls and then moved on to 3-D! Students used a pinch pot turned upside down for the body,  Here are our green ware clay owls drying on the shelf.




Now they are all bisque fired and ready for glazing!

 






 Glazed owls! The kids did a great job glazing and keeping the colors bright! Each owl had such a personality!

King Tut Revisited!

I wanted to do a new and improved version of KING TUT this year with 4th Grade, and this is the result! They worked with thin metal and created texture with repousse techniques as well as color!
