This unit is intended for a beginning-level ceramics or three-dimensional art class. However, it can be also be used as a warm-up or side-project. This is a great project to encourage students to explore clay tools to create texture, and also how to score and slip clay pieces. Since the clay tiles are easy to fire, they're also a great introduction to glazing. In my class, we glazed the tiles, but you could alter this project so students paint them instead.
