Ceramics, Day 1

Our visiting artist from the Mariposa Art Council’s Artist in the School Program, Phyllis Becker, lead her first successful class in Room 5 today. Our classroom turned into a ceramic studio as she gave a slideshow of ancient pottery and gave a pinch-pot demo. Everyone had so much fun once they all got to work creating a pinch-pot turned animal! We also learned some basic ceramic terminology such as: bisqueware, greenware, glazeware, slipping, and scoring. The seven visits we have left with Ms. Becker will fly by!
