These students are working on drawing Blind Contour Drawings. Blind contour drawings have students look at only the object they are drawing so they are an exercise in hand-eye coordination. Students drawing bottles are practicing drawing outlines of objects- showing only the outer edges of the bottles.
Working with Color and Shape
Students creating a color wheel using only the primary colors. Making monsters out of just shape.
8th Graders Ceramics Unit
Students create projects beginning with preparing the clay all the way through glazing and firing their pieces.
Students worked in groups to create a chalk painting that represented a theme of their choice.
Teach What you Have Learned
My 8th grade students work with 1st graders from the elementary school to create a ceramic project for Mother's Day. They teach them all the processes and assist them in making a wall pocket. We have been doing this project for so many years that students who were first graders are now participating as 8th graders!
Students not only produce the entire book, they take all the pictures. Learning about how to take a good picture is a large portion of the class. These are great pictures taken by students in the class.
