We are starting the term with a resident artist - Andrew is here for the week working with every class each day. He is teaching us about working with clay and we are all busy creating a tile for display in the school.
|Andrew is showing us how to transfer our design onto the clay slab|
|We drew our design on paper in class and then etched it into the soft clay. We had to look carefully at our design and think about how big it was.|
|We used sausage rolls of clay to on top of some of our lines to make them stand out.|
|Andrew showed us how to 'glue' on the clay rolls with slip. Slip is a wet mix of clay and water. Then we had to press the rolls on firmly so it will stay on.|
We hope to show you some more photos of the art we create during the term.
