In 6th grade we will be looking at the elements of art during the course of the trimester during the three projects that we work on. In each project we formally introduce the elements to be covered in a series of worksheets.

On our first project we will be looking at the elements of art form and texture with a ceramic whistle. By creating a functional form with texture as a focus, students will use clay to express their interpretation of an animal. Each student is allowed to creatively express his or her choice of animal with the only limitation being the form of the whistle must be able to function. While the whistles dry and then go into the kiln, we will start our second project. We will pause the second project to come back to glaze the work after a bisque firing.
