Cassie Stephens: Clay Mugs for Kids!


Hello, good friends! My college students are wrapping up a single of the clay assignments they developed and I considered I would share. Past yr, my initial as a result of fourth developed clay mugs and it was effortlessly everyone’s favored clay challenge. When I shared that we were being doing the job with clay once more, a few months ago, their first query was “are we making mugs once again?!” I experienced presently planned on it…so they ended up fired up to listen to the solution. The moment mugs are total, we celebrate by consuming very hot chocolate out of them…so it can be a entire good deal of entertaining. 

This year, I developed a movie to share with them. Mainly because I have 30 moment art lessons, I only confirmed the pinch pot portion and a bit of coil building for the first course. The second course, we did a brief coil making reminder and then viewed the portion about generating a take care of. The video clip aided them difficulty shoot and get their mugs completed in just two 30 moment lessons!

This 7 days, we commenced glazing! They had been advised they could use any two colors of glaze, one for the inside and 1 for the outside the house. They were being to do at least 3 coats of their preferred hues and not to glaze the base. The moment finish, they could be part of me at the splatter glaze station!

When my college students had been completed glazing, they could support a close friend or function on the massive banners I created to announce our approaching artwork demonstrate!

We applied Prang’s Creativeness Avenue Tempera Sticks to shade these with.

The glaze we used are from two companies and I like them both equally: Mayco’s Stroke and Coat and Amaco’s Teacher’s Palette. The two are foods safe and fireplace to cone 06.
