5th Grade Ceramic Masterpieces

Fifth grade artists have been learning about hand building with clay! They learned about creating with coils, slabs, and how to slip and score.

They each created a sculpture that used all three of these methods.

Some students chose to create a functional piece and others chose to create a more decorative sculpture.

They were all able to glaze their pieces thanks to the Michigan Youth Arts grant we received last year for glazes!
