Pinch Pot Painting

Ready To Go!

The One On The Left Matches The Blog! The Bonus Painting Was The Paper Underneath!


Painting The Inside Blue

This week at Alberta Art Classes, we painted the clay pots we sculpted last week. These pots will not be fired, just sealed. This makes for a quick project with very satisfying results for me and the children! We started with three pre-sized bits of clay. Starting with a smaller piece allows the fingers to limber up a little bit, we then shaped a small bowl. The children moved to the medium size, to the large, gaining dexterity and confidence so that working with a large bit of clay was not too difficult. This exercise also visually demonstrates small, medium and large. The best part? So fun.

I like to use old plates as pallets, easy clean-up, re-use. Perfect.
