I start at my new school tomorrow. I'm actually fairly excited about it. I still have quite a bit of organizing to do, but I'm ready for the first day at least.

I have quite a few projects that I had planned to share. First up-clay. The last art teacher left me well stocked with clay AND glaze, which was quite nice.

Fourth grade created clay busts

First graders created clay fish. These were really so fun!

Second graders studied Appalacian face jugs, which are just hilarious.

These were all fairly successful, though some of the kids got a little messy with the glazes.

Pre-K and Kindergarten looked at masks from around the world and created their own.


  1. How's the new school? Why did you have to switch again? That seems crazy. Love the clay pieces. I'm sure the kids do too. You are really awesome to do clay when you know you're leaving school. I give you a lot of credit.

  2. The schools are both pretty small and couldn't have both an art and music teacher. I was hired to switch at semester, but it still kinda stinks. So far so good at the new school. It's kind of weird switching gears so quickly to the first days of school, though.

  3. That would be weird, but maybe a little exciting, too. Change can be fun. Thanks for the follow. I am following you back. Nice to meet another art teacher.
