Peer Pressure :)

Sometimes all one needs is a little push and some inspiration to take a step outside one's comfort zone. I'll have to admit... we haven't worked with clay all year. It is a challenge on the best of days but excitement filled even on the worst of days. After spending the afternoon with the other elementary art teachers in our district, I felt inspired to break out the clay.
 
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. With a waning full moon and a week-long Thanksgiving break on the horizon, why not jump in head first?
 
In Fourth grade, we decided to make animal-inspired bells. We quickly reviewed the pinch pot hand-building and modeling methods along with scoring and slipping to join two clay forms.
 

 
A little Wonderland inspiration

 
 
 
Not quite a turkey ... but HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
