Hi. It is a snow day here in MA. YAHOO!! I think I am possibly more excited
than the kids must be. I have a question..and would like your thoughts. I
have created with some of my fourth grade classes some plaster vases and
pots and jars, some of the other classes created the same objects but in
clay. My focus was on the use of the material..a first for them. Now after
next week we will be faced with how to design them with color. I know that I
could probably switch into Native American or Mexican culture..but I am
wondering if there are any other ideas out there you might have that I am
not thinking about. I would like to try a different "theme" with each class
for variety. The other class has been working on the plaster "carnival
masks"..and we would be painting today if we didn't have this storm..oh,
well, it leaves me all this time to THINK! Thanks for your thoughts!
Stephanie :)
