Ceramic Symbols December 21, 2011

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 8:11 pm

The 4th graders recently created family trees.  Each family member was represented by a symbol on the tree.  As an extension of this project, the students took the symbols one step further.  They sculpted in clay their own, personal symbol.  Instead of glazing, the students painted the symbols with watercolors, which allows for mixing and blending of colors…a much different experience than glaze!  Many students chose to create a whole in their projects so yarn could be threaded through, for an option of hanging them.
