Clay Clocks

 My ceramics class created clocks inspired by Salvador Dali's "Persistence of Memory".
Each student sketched out their idea first. Then created a their piece using clay. The motivation was to create a clock design that would be memorable. Students used the slab handbuilding methods to create these unique designs.

What's in the attic? Part 2

I just started part two of this unit with my third graders. I posted a couple of weeks ago a lesson called "What's in the attic?" this is a drawing lesson based on a short story about a silly character who lives in an attic. Students based their drawing on the description of the character in the we are continuing this lesson but using our cutting and gluing skills. Here are a few examples. My third graders were really excited about this project.
