In this one hour class we will use a polymer oven bake clay, such as Fimo or Sculpy, to make a lovely miniature woodland landscape. We will discuss how to use small, simple parts in order to construct a larger, more complex landscape. I will show step by step directions and discuss what I am doing, however, the younger learners may require parental assistance making the clay more malleable. We will also be using small bits of wire to help hold everything together, soft aluminum wire is best....
The students will have to practice their problem solving skills. While this is only a single time clay class, those skills will be helpful in many aspects of their life.
The students will need the following: * Sculpy or Fimo clay in a variety of colors. I suggest the following: green (best if there is more than one shade of green), white, black, yellow, red, blue, brown. * Something that the student can use for a base of their landscape. This is optional, as we can make an island out of clay as well. However, in the past we have had great success with using the following: small ceramic flower pot dish, the top or bottom of an aluminum mint tin, etc. If the student decides to use a non clay base, keep in mind that it has to withstand the oven heat. * Armature wire/soft aluminum wire * 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. I am happy to provide links or photos of the materials upon request.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger learners may require parental assistance making the clay more malleable. We will also be using wire, soft aluminum wire is best. The students may require assistance cutting the wire, depending on their age and ability. At the end of the lesson, once our unicorn is complete, the learners will need assistance with the use the oven in order to bake the completed project. 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.
