Hands in Clay!

Fifth grade students discussed the use and significance of hands in artwork, and viewed artwork by artists such as Michaelangelo, Albrecht Durer, and M.C. Escher. 

Students then created their own hands out of cone 05 white or red clay, beginning with the palm, and then adding the fingers.  We let them dry in rings of twisted newspaper so that the fingers stayed elevated.  We really concentrated on successful glazing with this project, and I think it definitely payed off. A lot of students wanted to give these as Mothers' or Fathers' Day gifts!
