In this ongoing class students will get to explore their creativity through sculpting with clay! Each week students will make a new animal sculpture using basic hand building techniques such as slab forming, making pinch pots, rolling coils, and attaching pieces together. We will start the class with an introduction to our project and then students will follow a teacher lead step-by-step demonstration of how to build their 3D clay animals. While my directions are quite detailed, I also...
-Students will learn the basics of hand building with clay including: making pinch pots, flattening slabs, rolling coils, and attaching two pieces of clay together.
I have taught elementary art for over 17 years and each of my lessons is developed thoughtfully and practiced ahead of time keeping in mind student skill level and interests. I am passionate about helping young artists find their unique artistic voices, and therefore I balance guided drawing with creative expression in this class. I provide positive encouragement to students throughout our class time and hope they enjoy working with clay as much as I do.
Students may wish to continue adding finishing touches or paint their clay sculptures after class time has ended.

Clay Tips: *When not using your air dry clay be sure to cover it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and keep it in a sealed ziplock bag. It will dry out if left in the open air. *Clay takes time to dry. You may want to put a large open ziplock bag over the clay sculpture as it dries so it is less likely to crack. As it dries you will want to periodically turn your clay sculpture to ensure an even and thorough drying. *Clay is breakable. Be sure to store your finished clay some place safe. If it breaks, usually a little white glue or super glue should do the trick. *If you choose to color your clay once it is dried you can use watercolors or acrylic craft paint. You can also seal your clay with a clear acrylic based sealant such as Mod Podge. We will only be building our sculptures in class. Other decorating and painting is your choice.
Supplies Needed: -White air dry clay - I like Crayola Air Dry Clay, White Amaco Air Dry Modeling Clay, or Jovi Air Dry Modeling Clay -A work surface - a paper plate, parchment covered table, or plastic cutting board -Clay tools, toothpicks, popsicle sticks, rolling pins, etc. - whatever you have is fine. Our hands will be our best tool! **Please see other clay tips under Parental Guidance
