Description

Class Experience

Learners will practice and become fluent in the techniques taught in class while developing their own ideas and style. They will develop an understanding of how to sculpt clay using their hands. This is an important first step if the learners would like to sculpt clay on a pottery wheel someday.
I am an artist myself and have a kiln and make a variety of ceramics. I have been a children’s art instructor for the past 7 years. I have taught ages 7 to 18-year-olds. This clay class was popular. I taught ongoing classes and taught all these clay techniques and more. I have taken many art classes over a 10- year span and have developed all the techniques I teach from my own learning experience.
Research the animal and habitat and find facts that the learner did not know. They can also share information they already knew about the habitat as well. Books are a great way to gather information and encourage reading at the same time. It is optional for them to share. 

Art learners will need to finish sculpting outside of class if they did not finish in class. They can put their unfinished clay animal in a ziploc bag and finish at any time after class. 
Air drying clay - white or grey in color (these colors are easier to paint). This is NOT modeling clay, if you are not sure what to buy I will be sending a video to explain what to use and how to cut in the welcome message when you sign up. Rolling pin or round wood dowel, this will be needed to roll the clay out Dental floss (parents please cut clay before each class. I have instructions on how to do that in the class video) Bowl or dish (that does not spill easily. The learners will be dipping their fingers in it to wet the clay) Water filled half full in a bowl. Styrofoam, plastic plate or cardboard about 8x10 in size (this will be used to put the clay creations on while they are sculpting them and while they are drying) Paper and a pencil (to draw ideas) Ziploc bags (for unused clay to keep it from drying out) Acrylic paints colors will depend on what colors the art learners want to use suggestions of colors to have on hand are any animal colors like brown, black, white, orange, red, green
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Please make sure each learner is in a quiet space and that they know how to mute and unmute their microphone. How much they get to unmute will depend on how much noise is in the background.  

Some parent supervision may be required. Clay is messy but easy to clean up and does not stain clothes. Please talk with your child ahead of time, where they can wash their clay filled hands when they are done. 

We need to use a plastic knife for scoring, or you can provide a pencil if you do not want your child to use a plastic knife.

If you have a kiln available to use, then you can purchase that type of clay instead of the air-drying clay All techniques are the same whether you use air drying clay or kiln firing clay. If you are going to fire the clay in a kiln, please contact me and I will give you specific instructions for that clay including the paint you will need (you will not use the acrylic paint).

I will be asking learners to research the animal, how you research is up to you, books are a great way to encourage reading and help them gather information about the animals and habitat. It is ok for learners to share what they already know too. It is optional for learners to share if they choose too.

Please remember that an Outschool requirement is that parents are not in the camera view at any time during class. If you need to assist your learner, please make sure you are not seen on screen while assisting.
