It’s absolutely refreshing to be back after a wonderful 2 week break. I hope everyone had a lovely Pesach break! Right before we went on break, my after school ceramics program had just started. I’ve got a great group of kids and we hit the ground running on our first day. We learned about “wedging” clay and created our first piece which is a texture pinch pot.
They look really Great and I can’t wait for when the kids will get to GLAZE their work!
Now that we are back from break, I am beginning to introduce clay to most of the grades. We are beginning by learning clay vocabulary such as greenware, leatherware, bisque, slip, score, coil, and slab. I then let the students play with the clay so they can get familiar with the texture, since it is different from the modeling clay we have used in the past.

Look at the adorable lady bugs kindergarten made today in art!! Can’t wait to create more ceramics with HT!
