Awhile back I headed to our local Menards to buy Taco Bowls. They had two packs on sale for $1.79 each. I bought 80 of them. Yes the guy helping me load them though I was crazy... I mean who needs 80 taco bowls.
Well, Art teachers do. My 6th graders used them when creating their clay coil projects. The assignment was to create a project that had two requirements: it has to be some sort of bowl, it has to be created using the coil method. They finished them with tempera and varnish. I think they are awesome!
Students in my after school cartooning program were assigned the task of creating their own cartoon character. One of the things I had them do was create a clay slab version of their main cartoon character. They turned out pretty cute!
We have had a family tradition for a few years of doing"2 goods and a bad" at the supper table. Today I brought it to the art room.
My students are working on drawing their personal art galleries... because they have like 20 million dollars each.
and as class was wrapping up I had them do two goods and a bad with their neighbor. They had to start by telling their neighbor two good things (things they liked about their own artwork). Then they had to tell their neighbor one bad thing (one thing they could still improve on their own image). It was a lot of fun eavesdropping on what they had to say. They were pretty spot on!
