Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!

Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!

Hi, close friends! My college students are wrapping up 1 of the clay assignments they developed and I considered I’d share. Past yr, my very first as a result of fourth made clay mugs and it was very easily everyone’s favourite clay challenge. When I shared that we were operating with clay once again, a couple months in the past, their first issue was “are we generating mugs once again?!” I experienced previously planned on it…so they had been excited to hear the answer. The moment mugs are entire, we rejoice by drinking incredibly hot chocolate out of them…so it is really a full large amount of entertaining. 

This year, I established a video clip to share with them. For the reason that I have 30 moment artwork classes, I only confirmed the pinch pot part and a bit of coil making for the very first class. The next class, we did a temporary coil building reminder and then watched the portion about producing a tackle. The video aided them problems shoot and get their mugs finished in just two 30 minute courses!

This 7 days, we commenced glazing! They ended up informed they could use any two colors of glaze, 1 for the within and 1 for the outside. They ended up to do at least three coats of their picked colours and not to glaze the bottom. As soon as full, they could be a part of me at the splatter glaze station!

When my learners have been completed glazing, they could assistance a pal or get the job done on the massive banners I made to announce our approaching artwork demonstrate!

We applied Prang’s Creative imagination Street Tempera Sticks to coloration these with.

The glaze we utilized are from two organizations and I like them both equally: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. The two are foods secure and fireplace to cone 06.
