Down in Hotlanta, my classes just finished up a ceramic soup bowl,
project--handbuilt ceramic bowl, decorated with patterned designs using
underglazes, glazed with clear glaze, then sold at our Holiday Concerts
(when we had lots of parents coming in) by our Art Club to raise monies for
charities. Made lots of people happy!!!!!!--students, parents, teachers,
and some children in local homeless situations who will be receiving at
least one thing on their wish list. Part of the monies raised I think are
also being used to buy blankets for a local men's shelter. The money was
turned over to the Sophomore, Junior and Senior Class advisors to add to
their service projects.

We didn't make it in time for the "Empty Bowl" project which is done
nationally,and I can't ever seem to get the info in time, so we just did
our own version of it.

The second ceramic project was to make a relief sculpture of an area of
their home--front entrance, fireplace, favorite spot--and decorate it with
(of their choosing) stuff!!! Handsome pieces in white clay, glazed
clear,with a yellowish look like ivory when fired. These are gifts for
their family when finished.

One group is just finishing up an Independent Study project based on Yaakov
Agam's work. Using old discarded door moldings (2" X 3" X 70",
appoximately), the students paint a different image on three sides of each
piece. The finished pieces are glued to a back leaving about 3 inches
between each strip. When installed, you see one image from the left side,
one with a straight on view, and a third image from the right side. We
have tried to locate the artist for an online interview, but have not

When we return in January, I'm going to try Ken's embossed lesson with some
Japanese fabric patterns as a source for design. My Art II classes will be
working on a "Mola" technique using multi layers of colored paper, cut
through to reveal each layer of color. Their image will be based on the
logo of the college they plan to attend--looking for some subject matter
they can identify with!!!!

What are some of the rest of you doing? Thanks Gabrielle for starting this
thread. Helps me to start plugging into what I'll be doing in January!!!
But it sure is great to have a couple of weeks to spend with family and

Happy Holidays to all!!!!
