Fourth Grade artists were really, really excited to finally take their clay lions home! We began our lions WAY before Christmas break, but with many snow days and over 600 pieces to fire in our little kiln, the lions have been slow to finish. BUT well worth the wait, as you can see!
Second grade artists completed their fabulous clay frogs this week by adding black line details to the tongue and eyes of their project. And of course…the final important detail, a delicious plastic fly for their frogs to eat! Gotta love the fly!

Six hundred twenty clay projects ready to fire in the kiln….and yikes, Mr. Kiln repeatedly goes into alarm and shows a bad boy error code. Who swoops in to save the day? Why, Mr. Rob, our awesome and talented custodian! Big thanks to Mr. Rob for getting his custodian buds to check those mysterious amps [...]
A few more student pieces have been selected for our upcoming 2011 Student Art Show. Congratulations, artists!
Finally had time to load the kiln this week – my fourth graders are dying to see their wall pockets that they began before Christmas break. Here they are still in the kiln – too hot to handle! We’ll add a wire to hang them, and maybe some beads too. Hope to send them home [...]
