Smiling while rolling out those bubbles. One sweet comment
about the printmaking was that the artist was making honey.
This is because the circles so close together look like honeycombs.
This student was pulling and rolling many pieces of clay.
He worked very diligently on this. At the end I asked him
about all that hard work. He said that it was carpool.
Drawing from life is helpful in learning to look for small
details. The artists all sat quietly and observed an eggplant
plant . They saw holes and veins in the leaves, an ant or two,
the eggplant itself,and the rocks in the vase. They drew with
black fine tipped markers on paper. They really loved the boards
that their paper was attached to.
A couple of kindergartners saved a small sculpture.
This will take a while to dry and then it will have to wait
to be fired in a kiln.
This young printmaker is finally done with his brayer
and using his hands to pop the bubbles that he had
run paint over earlier

These young ones had so much fun pushing
and poking this clay.
Capturing the attention of students of all
ages. Each one learning something new and
different. They all look forward to more clay work.
