PreK: From Picasso to Pinch Pots

After looking at and discussing a few portraits by Picasso, PreK got the chance to make their own abstract faces. Last week, they made two different versions of Picasso faces. The first was just a self-portrait that was cut in to sections and then glued back together in whatever order the artist desired. The second involved cutting a second portrait into four sections. Then, each student traded pieces with someone else until everybody had four different pieces to work with. They glued those pieces together into a new face.

This week, we worked on the basics of ceramics. We looked at pinch pots and coil pots, did a practice run in play-doh, and then actually created our own pots with clay. Everyone was eager to take them home, but, sadly, they had to stay at school to dry. That didn’t stop their excitement over having created two little pots all on their own! They were all very proud, and they should be! The ceramics came out wonderfully, and everyone learned how to do something new.
