First graders learned about the art of clay tile making. They used the additive technique to create a picture on a tile. They could choose the picture that they wanted to make. Some of them used their "old reliable schemas" as the subject matter (hearts, smiley faces, etc). Some took a more original approach. Either way, they were all excited about the process and proud of their products. We painted them with tempera paint (glaze gets so expensive!!) and then I sprayed them with an enamel for shine.
