The 1st grade artists got their hands dirty with clay this week. Students explored how to make mini bowls with plasticine clay. The white pliable materials never dries out and is the perfect tool to practice our clay skills. Students observed a demonstration by me first using a document camera projected on our interactive white board. We discussed the sticky property of the plasticine clay and how we can pinch, stretch, and mold the clay into vessels. A vessel is a form that's function is to hold a material. These perfect pinch pots will prepare our students for their final projects next week!
