Art 1

I introduced the Art 1 students to ceramics by teaching slipping and scoring between two layers: The background shape and the cut out image. Students laid out paper printouts on top of clay and used needle tools to trace designs onto a second slab of the same size and shape as their chosen backgrounds. This seemed to be a nice transition into 3D relief because many students had little or no previous experience with ceramics.
