Fifth Grade Art Gallery

The Tradition of Coil Pottery
 Like many cultures before them, fifth grade students have been using hand-building clay techniques to create coil pottery. Their challenge was to build a clay pot that was strong and unique, using their own design and decorative additions. The pots are currently being fired and will be completed with glaze colors.

 Blind Contour Drawings
Fifth grade artists practice drawing only what they see by sketching still life object contours or outlines without looking at their papers. The results: fun! This activity allowed the students to simply focus on drawing, while developing their observational skills, and not worrying so much about perfection!
