Mizz Mac's Story Pots is an art project for beginners and intermediate students. A supply list is given with choices for the teacher to use either earthenware clay or air dry clay which can be ordered online from an art supply company or bought locally from an arts and crafts store. Directions and photographs of steps are given for forming a pinch pot and illustrations for adding characters or a main idea of a story to the pot in the same manner as one slave by the name of Dave the Potter. A link to my pinterest board is given with examples of historical story pots.
Directions and photographs are also given for creating a face pot in the manner of African-American slaves or Southern Folk artists.
