Gathering ideas and making an art work from clay

For this lesson we will look at the work of two artists who work with clay. We will use their work as inspiration for our own making. We will gather ideas in our sketchbook and begin to make our artwork out of clay. We will evaluate our work as it progresses. This lesson includes some physical activity and equipment beyond pen, paper or pencil. Please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
