5th-Grade Pottery – Yum.

November 30, 2012

from Holy Cross Art Teacher, Mr. Long –

Holy Cross 5th graders just completed a clay project called “Plates-o-Food”.

In this unit, students learn about the artist Pablo Picasso, and how he changed ceramics from a craft to a fine art. We also learn about Form, the differences between 2D & 3D Art and bas-relief sculpture.

For the sculpture part of the project, the students design and make their own Plate-o-food, and the results are amazing and always unique for each student. They learn different techniques for building, forming and texture of the clay.

This project has always been a favorite here at Holy Cross.
