Grade 1 students have started experimenting with their last clay skill by learning how to create clay slabs using rolling pins and other clay tools.
To gather inspiration for a slab project, the students learned about African masks and discussed the similarities and differences found in different mask designs.
Grade 1 artists designed their own African inspired mask in their sketchbook. They used these drawings to work from when creating with clay. Next week the students will begin glazing to add color and pattern to their collection of culturally inspired clay projects!
