Monday:
they started a coil /pinch pot on friday it is to be a flared out shape.

we need to start a new lesson on making clay rattles, the rattle is made with two clay balls ,that are the same size and made into 2 pinch pots, then make about 7 small balls each one covered with a little paper towel ,put these inside one of the halves and then score and slip the edges of both pinch pots together , work carefully to seal edges good and to not get the pots out of shape , i really want you to have a circle here.
Design the ball with a theme, think of nature , like leaves all around , think of a cause such as breast cancer. for design you can carve in or add on embellishments.
Store in a bag as needed.
Tuesday:
continue on with the rattle as needed.
We will start a slab construction piece.
first we will do a small 3 sided piece to learn the skills. we will also do a lid so the students will have the experience of creating a lid that fits , the how to do it.
The theme for the outside is vines and flowers.
Wednesday:
Slab work.

our large project for slab work. the students will look up an artist and will create a visual story of the artist and their work. i have books on the top shelf of the book shelf cabinet. these books contain information on artists , also their are artists folders in the second drawer down in the brown file cabinet- the students must plan out each side in writing and also the top and the handle before work begins.
The box will be a 6'' by 4'' base. with a height of 4 inches.
As they plan they are to use these measurements.
