Testing Clay

While timing unfortunately did not allow for drying and painting of the clay sculptures during the preschool class last week, my husband and I had fun doing the test run. Craftsmart's natural clay was great to work with, but the idea of not firing it seemed so odd. The finished products were much more finished (for lack of a better word) when painted with acrylics.

Preschool Sculpture Class

Taught my first of three art classes this week to 3&4 year olds today. We played with clay and made animals.
