A Day of Clay
The Meadows (2nd and 3rd Grade) Class had the opportunity to visit the Waterbury Seminary art center. They met director and artist Mame McKee and discovered how this art studio is a vital part of the community. Students spent the day exploring the medium of clay and the various hand-building techniques such as pinch, coil and slab. A highlight for the students was trying their hand at throwing a pot on the wheel. The children created clay slab bowls that were inspired by the country they are currently studying. The students will come together to share traditional rice dishes from the countries they are learning about and will eat these dishes from their handmade bowls!
