For this clay project 4th graders explored the coil technique. We learned about slipping and scoring and how it is important when using clay. Students first rolled a coil, slipped and scored the edges, and rolled it back up to create the shell. Using clay tools, students then added a pattern or design on the shell. Students used the remaining clay to add a head and legs.
To add color we first used oil pastel and went over it with watered down black tempera.
