1st grade clay tiles

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.
