To prepare for the holidays there were clay projects galore in the art room, especially in the lower grades. First graders made thumb pots with lids and celebrated their completion with a tea party. Second graders made hot chocolate mugs; third graders made ornaments, and fourth graders made Christmas trees. Seventh graders worked very hard on a carving project using blocks of sandstone. They watched their ideas come and go as the nature of the material came into play. The results were very pleasing. They then researched and gave presentations on this sculpture technique.
