Clay Critique

5th grade checks out their final clay pieces during the "clay critique". Each students shares their success with their clay and then another student gives them a compliment using some of the vocabulary we discussed during the process.

Clay, Clay and more Clay!

We have been creating with clay in grades 3rd, 4th and 5th. WoW! The pottery is outstanding! The students in 3rd grade created coil pots with rope coils and then glazed them. The 4th grade created slab pockets and finished with glazing. 5th grade turned their "mixed-up animal" drawing into a clay sculpture. All are fantastic pieces of art which may been seen in the halls and library at BES. Come check them out before they are sent home.

Kachina Project

The Kachina Doll project is well on its way to becoming even more awesome. The students found their pieces and have glued them together. Now they are staining the wood with tempera paint and next we will add details. The students are VERY proud of their work...

Thank you for the WOOD!

We are well on our way to creating our Kachina Dolls thanks to all of the people who donated wood! The 2nd grade has been studying Native Americans and so we have been studying Kachina Spirits, Kachina Dancers and Kachina Dolls. The students drew their spirit and now are busy creating the spirit into a 3D wood sculpture. This is very exciting to be working with wood.
