All week when the kids come into art class, they start screaming.  I've been trying to control it, but I might as well try to control the wind.  The reason for their ecstatic excitement is that this week, we are working with clay.   Man, kids love clay.  At Paddock we do two clay projects a year.  The first we are beginning this week.
First grade students are learning about clay, clay tools, how clay becomes a pot, etc.  They are also viewing and discussing pottery from different cultures and times.  The project the first grade students are working on is a clay pinch-pot.  So far they are amazing.
Second grade students, who already have some experience under their collective belts, are learning about animal effigy vessels.  We are focusing on Pre-Columbian effigy vessels.  The students view and discuss animal effigy vessels during a PowerPoint presentation, and then create their own.  The artworks we view and discuss,as well as their own artworks, are to be of an animal that they, or the person they are making it for, share a quality with.  For example, one students father works at night and sleeps during the day, so his effigy might be an owl.  I like to take naps and like people a lot, so my effigy might be a dog. 
Students create a pinch pot, then roll a slab and cut out ears, etc. for their animal.  They attach the pieces to the pot to create an animal effigy vessel.  I still have pictures of these from last year, so hopefully I'll upload them!
