Studio Happenings

Gilliatte:
 
We finished painting clay cats in Jessie’s classes, and in Juliana’s classes, we finished painting the clay people for the city the children are building.
 
In Laura’s class, they explored the parts of doors using a small magnet board, some Velcro, and pictures of the parts of doors.
 
Jessie and Bryan’s classes began making masks in response to some of the artwork we saw last week at the IMA.
 
Lab:
 
We had our first visit from our IMA artist as part of our participation in the TAG Along program with the IMA and Arts for Learning.
 
We made some clay bowls using coil, pinch, and slab techniques.  These will be part of St. Mary’s contribution to a large event in the spring hosted by an SMCC board member.
 
We visited the IMA and explored the piece, “The Floor.”
 
Thompson:
 
We made some clay bowls using coil, pinch, and slab techniques.  These will be part of St. Mary’s contribution to a large event in the spring hosted by an SMCC board member.
