We did a whole school project last fall at our Elementary School of 550
students. This was a project my student teacher and I did together. We made a
textured tile mosaic mural that now hangs in the school. My student teacher saw
the original lesson in Pottery Maker Illustrated, July/August 2004. We
discussed the theme of community. Everyone in the school - Principal, lunch
ladies, custodian, teachers, students made a 2 inch square tile. The cool part -
students used the sole of their shoes to press into a clay slab to create
texture. Students made the tile, created texture, and glazed them during a 45
minute lesson. Underglaze colors corresponded with those of the rainbow, so
all together it made a stunning display. I have pictures if anyone would like
to see it. This was fun for everyone and the students love to see it
hanging in the lobby.
