Cute Polymer Clay Animals and Creatures
In this ongoing class we will make a cute animal or creature in every class.
In this ongoing class we will be making a variety of adorable animals and other creatures out of polymer oven bake clay. Each week we will make a different thing, and as we go, the learners are welcome to suggest what to make. I will show step by step directions and discuss what I am doing, and share some awesome tips on working with polymer clay. There is a chance that the students will want to continue working on their sculpture after the class, and then wind up making more clay figures...
I have been teaching art for over 10 years. My focus always was and will remain on the process of making art. It is so important that kids enjoy themselves in their creative expression.
Homework OfferedOccasionally, the learners will have to attach finishing touches independently after class.
Assessments OfferedEvery assignment, I am happy to provide feedback, identify where the student has struggled, and figure out together how to help them overcome the difficulty and come up with a viable solution.
The students will need the following: * Sculpy or Fimo clay in a variety of colors, I suggest orange, black, white, gray, brown, blue, green, red, yellow, purple. Any other color that students prefer. * Soft wire: 16 to 20 gauge is good. * Jewelry wire cutters that are safe and easy to use. * Basic clay tools. In the absence of the tools, a toothpick, or a large plastic sewing needle will work for most things. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have about the materials.
The younger learners may require parental assistance making the clay more malleable. We will also be using wire, soft aluminum wire is best, gauge 18 or 16. The students may require assistance cutting the wire, though if the wire is soft enough and the wire clippers are safe to use, they should be able to complete that independently. At the end of each lesson, once our project is complete, the learners will need assistance with the use the oven in order to bake the completed project. For this class it is important that we all begin at the same time. If, for any reason, the learner will be delayed by more than 10 minutes, please reach out and we can arrange a make up class after the session is finished. Note to parents, please be sure to follow instructions when baking the clay. The temperatures for this kind of clay is often quite low (around 250 degrees), and is stated on the clay box or wrapper.
