First through fifth graders have a blast pinching, coiling, flattening, carving and incising clay in Santa Monica’s CREST Enrichment program which provides a variety of after school classes in Santa Monica Public Schools.
In this class, we invited parents and siblings to join as, as students painted their clay projects from the past month. A wonderful time was held by all!
“Here’s Lookin’ at You, Kid…”….
Laying out the work…pinch pot, coil and slab techniques.
Getting messy and loving it!
Careful work done by all three.
Painting mask faces.
Primary colors red, blue and yellow are laid out on one plate/palette, while new and inventive colors are mixed on another.
Little brother gets into the act too!
Sad? Mad? Bad? All three?
Sharing a palette.
A rich and colorFULL way to wind down our class, and wind up for summer.
The creative juices are flowing, and ready to take on more challenges.
