In this polymer clay art class, students will learn how to use clay techniques to make Wings of Fire figurines. Students will learn how to use tools and how to shape clay. They will discuss the characters and favorite books in the series. We will learn how to shape eyes and connect wings and add detail to our characters. Students should bring an image of things that they would like to make that are not pictured in the cover photo. I will have images of the characters attached to a handout...
Students will learn: -Different techniques related to making things out of clay. -How fun and relaxing it is to talk and brainstorm and create with others while creating things with polymer clay. -How to be patient and positive with yourself while learning new skills. -With the help of an adult; how to bake the clay to keep it intact.
I am an experienced classroom, afterschool program, and summer camp teacher.

Polymer clay will not dry out if exposed to air.
There is no formal assessment, but I like to see students leaving class confident about trying other projects on their own.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Polymer clay will need to be baked in order for the clay to stay intact. The instructions for baking are always listed on the package or kit of clay that you purchase.
