Clay Loom project

My Art Foundations 3 class had an amazing project they created last semester I wanted to share with everyone. I like this Clay loom project because it taught my students so many great art related lessons and they really loved creating them.

I used this project to teach them about texture, form and line. Form was taught by showing the students how the clay has height width and depth. Texture was taught by showing the students how they could create different surface textures in their clay projects by pressing details into the wet clay. Line was taught by showing the students how to work with colored threads to weave in the hole they created their clay. Combined this was an art project the students were proud of.

This project is a wonderful way to teach several different elements of art at the same time. The project shown above were created by Mac Lehman, Elizabeth Miner, Aurora James and Jaidrian James.
