When finished, the kids will vote on the one that represents the chapter the best and those tiles will become part of a permanent piece - kind of like a storyboard in clay. So far, all is going well and the pieces look great. My question: do you think I should limit colors of glaze to create a unified piece? Perhaps use a wash or ????? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for sharing the idea of how to learn storyboarding. How important is it that the teacher makes this learning choice? What could they learn about how artists think by having a class discussion in which they have to decide on how best to finish the pieces for this assignment?
