The "Wondercolor" studies allow students to explore with crayon, paint, water, paper and salt.
Each student chooses two colors, curved or straight lines for the underlying structure; then they
apply the water, paint  and take time to watch what happens before they add the salt. This study
illustrates how the movement of the paint and water helps the artist create. Then we wonder what
images will appear to the viewer with imagination. Here are a few samples.
Sculpting character faces helps the student understand the forms that make up the
"landscape" of the face.   Students were allowed to embellish their "faces" with motifs that
would indicate the character's spirit or personality. We used the sculpey clays that come in
a variety of colors,but most of the students had to mix the clays to get the desired skin
tones and other colors.

Polymer clay sculpture by Jackson B., age 10

Because the craft oven is limited in size Jackson
had to create this 12" tall interpretation in  several
pieces, then assemble.
Inspired by the Season, Tate, age 9,
created an angel bell and candy cane
ornament. He followed a pattern in a clay
book to create the purple cow.
