Little Monsters

We're back to school as of Monday and we got right back to work.  I showed you fifth grade's clay faces and kindergarten's pinched pots a few weeks ago.  First grade did not want to be outdone.  They used their previous knowledge of pinched pot making and made their own clay faces, but with a twist.  We had read Where the Wild Things Are recently and decided to make our own Wild Things.  Do not be afraid.  These are nice monsters...for the most part.

These creatures were fired but not glazed.  We decided not to make them all shiny looking and paint them with tempera paints.  I had to get a picture as they came out of the kiln though. 










We'll be painting these in the next couple of weeks.  I'm looking forward to the finished product.  I have a large display case sitting empty waiting to be filled with artwork.  I'll get a few pictures as they get painted for your viewing pleasure.

  4. WoW very creative !! I guess the years he spent on higher education/college paid off. Being an art teacher sounds like a very fulfilling job. It takes a dedicated person to teach children. Keep up the good work and keep posting.
