Intro to Hand Building will be an opportunity for students to work with clay as an art medium. Each student will become familiar with the basic methods of construction, decoration, vocabulary, as well as sculptural techniques.

***Hand building is the method of manipulating clay using one's hands and handheld tools. Children will use slab, coil and pinch techniques to create and paint a project. 

Air drying clay will be used for the series. This type of clay doesn't require an oven or kiln to create a beautiful, unique art.
