Summer Pottery

Summer pottery class with older students in grades 3-6 were taught techniques to create work in clay.  The older students were able to understand and grasp concepts in a different way than the younger students.  Sometimes they were more hesitant to take chances, but when they did, they were rewarded. Their finished pieces show maturity and understanding of skills.  Here is a look at a few of my favorite pieces from this 4 day summer pottery camp at Newton Community Education.
