Brighten Up Your Clay
My students need low fire glazes and brushes so students have the opportunity to use brighter colors than we can normally use in our ceramics classroom.
Our students are stuck using the colors that we have with our normal cone 10 high fire glazes. Many of them want to explore colors and combinations beyond what we can provide for them.
Our students are at a title I school in the shadows of the Magic Kingdom.
They are 70% Hispanic and come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Our school is diverse and that is what makes it so special. Students in ceramics range from all levels of special education all the way up to AP studio art students.
These resources will allow the students to use a variety of brighter low fire glazes that they can use in combination with the regular high fire glazes that we have been using in the past. The low fire glazes are relatively expensive and are not economical for me to purchase with my normal unit budget. The students will use the the glazes for an animal project where they will create a mythological creature of their imagination and write a short story describing the history of this animal/creature.
This project will challenge the students creatively to make their own mythological creature and a written story about the creature.
This project will challenge them technically to use a variety of techniques and materials not normally available to them.
