Clay Station

Clay was added as a station in the spring in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Techniques were demonstrated, then the students chose their subject matter. The clay was then fired in the kiln. Some students used acrylic paint to add color.

One of the techniques demonstrated at the clay station was building by coils. This student added coils to a pinch pot to create this unique pot. The other techniqes demonstrated were pinch and pull, and additive sculpture. This student used both coiling and additive techniques to add the decorations on the pot.
