CLAY CRITTERS at Isabella Bird

We’ll use real clay & glazes to make Clay Critters: cats, turtles, fish, birds and more. We’ll learn about coil pots, pinch pots, and working with clay slabs to create pottery that we glaze in lots of bright colors. Adventures in Art will fire the pottery in a kiln and bring it back to school so students can take their finished work home. In our last class we'll use paint in a rainbow of colors to finish pre-made pottery.  (K-5)
