I always try to incorporate at least one sculpture based project in my Introduction to Art class. I want to give my students a taste of what a 3D or ceramics class would be like to help them decide what art course to take next.
This lesson introduces students two three construction methods in clay.
They have to make a coil bowl, a slab bowl, and a bowl on the pottery wheel (an optional part of the lesson if you don't have access to pottery wheels). This lesson gives students a chance to try out hand building and throwing on the wheel.
The ZIP file includes
➢Introduction to clay PowerPoint
➢Introduction to throwing on a pottery wheel
➢Lesson plan (which includes vocabulary, standards, step by step instructions, and standards)
This lesson is part of my Introduction to Art curriculum. Save money and don't plan for a year by purchasing it here.
