3rd Grade Clay Fish Sculptures

Third Grade students are creating fish sculptures out of clay. Students here are adding side fins and eyes using the score and slip method.

Students then added texture and different kinds of lines with the pin or needle tools. Students also had to add gills and a mouth.

Last, students painted one color of glaze onto the fired clay sculptures. Using one color creates UNITY, a principle of art we were studying with this particular lesson. Look for these beautiful sculptures in the hallway at school soon!
