Wyoming Winter Enrichment Program
Hand Building with Clay (grades K-4, session 2)
Students really get a feel for building with clay, creating flat and 3-D pieces and learning several painting techniques that are transferable to other mediums.
Days 1 & 2: Create one piece from clay each day. I demonstrate the properties of clay, discuss where clay comes from and help students understand the process of turning clay into ceramic.
Day 3: Students see their 1st piece as ceramic bisque. We cover how it has changed and what I did to make it into ceramic. Children get to paint the piece they made on day 1 and also get to create a piece(s) from their imagination.
Day 4: Children paint the piece they made on day 2 and any additional pieces they made on day 3. They take the piece they made on day 1 home!
Final pieces return to my workshop for glazing and firing. The pieces will be picked up Saturday March 9th, 1 week after the final class, at 84 Central Terrace in Wyoming.
