In art, students today have limited opportunities to work with a medium other than paper. Students need to realize that art is not merely a painting or a picture on the wall. With this project I would like to give the students an opportunity to work with clay. This project will be incorporated with our study of the indigenous people of the Americas. We will examine how Native Americans use their natural resources to meet their needs. Students will then have the opportunity to produce an object in clay then explain how the object would have been utilized in that time period. Students will be encouraged to use their knowledge of the Native Americans to produce artifacts they deem significant. This project requires enough non-toxic, air-dry clay to accommodate thirty one students. Students learn by doing and education should be fun. Thank you for considering my proposal.
