Class Experience

Learners will be able to:
-   take part in an original sensory learning experience
-contribute to uplifting community conversation for what they are thankful
-trust their own creative process and take creative risks
-use a variety of art and household materials to create unique, seasonal sculptures

Depending on learner ability and pacing more than one sculpture may be made during the duration of class. 
Teaching Experience:

Lisa holds a Masters of Education Degree from Villanova University, is a certified teacher in the state of Pennsylvania and holds certifications in English / Theatre / Communications. She has been teaching English, theater, ESL and art since 2006 to students aged 3-18 as well as adult ESL learners.
There is no homework for this class, however learners may enjoy finishing their clay sculptures and or altering them after class has finished. Learners will require adult supervision when baking their sculpture after class. 

brown, red, white, black, yellow and orange clay* (Lisa will use Sculpy brand polymer clay that can be baked after class)
clay tools if you have them such as a small rolling pin, something to cut clay with and a dotting tool 
OR a combination of the items below which can be used as clay tools:
1 popsicle stick or wooden coffee stirrer (to cut and make impressions in clay 
A marker or pen to roll clay flat
A pencil with eraser to push clay pieces together 
a plate or clean surface on which to work

To make brown clay from primary colors: 
Mix 2 parts red with 1 part yellow. Knead until you have a smooth orange color.
Pinch off a very small amount of blue and knead it into the orange until the color is smooth.
Continue adding blue until you have the color brown you desire

Assessment / Participation:

While this is a participation-based class, I understand that some students may not take as much of an active role in the discussion. I understand this does not mean they aren't actively engaged. There is no formal assessment, but students will be encouraged to take part in the discussion as much as they are willing and share their sculpture with the class. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners will need adult supervision after class when using the oven to bake their polymer clay sculptures. Adults, please follow the baking instructions on your learner’s clay packaging for how-to bake your learner’s sculpture.
