Working with clay is perhaps one of the most rewarding experiences of a child’s elementary art career. All that squeezing and shaping and then finally….a finished piece! Kids love them and parents treasure them. It’s a win-win situation. But sometimes, working with clay can be a daunting experience. Believe me, I’ve been there! Hopefully, I can take the fear out of working with clay and show you that it can be done with little or no experience. If you have a kiln and the desire, you’re all set! If you don’t have a kiln, the projects demonstrated are easily adaptable for any air dry clay.
The lessons in this 19-page art booklet are practically fail-proof. I’ve compiled my best tips from seven years of ceramic experience and broken up the information into categories:
Supplies (what to get, where to get it and what the heck is it in the first place)
Working with Clay (some pointers to prevent blow-ups…not from you, but in the kiln!)
The Kiln (and why it’s not such a scary thing)
Complete photo-tutorials of seven projects are detailed:
- Basic Pinch Pot
- Decorative Coasters (A GREAT teacher’s gift)
- Leaf Bowls
- Wall Plaques
- Plus a few extra project ideas thrown in.
