The forth grade students are doing a Nick Cave project right now that I am super excited about. The students are really getting into it so far as well. If you don't know who the artist Nick Cave is, you're really missing out. Watch these videos!
I'll post more information about details of the project once the students have completed, but wanted to show some of the inventive, fun suits that the students are drawing!
Here's just a little sneak peak at the 1st grade mobiles project we are doing.
These are some of the clay medallions that the students made. They were made by making clay textured medallions then firing. After coming out of the kiln, rather than glazing, the student colored on them with oil pastels, then painted over the piece with watered-down Tempera paint and then rinsed them in water. This is the effect. I love, love, love them. Plus, the students had a blast. The 1st graders at Evergreen are amazing!
