We worked with clay again in kindergarten and once again focused on texture. Texture is how something feels, or how something looks like it feels. Each student was a given a chunk of clay that they flattened out with the palm of their hand. Then we used different materials to press textures into the clay. When they were finished, I draped their clay slab over a styrofoam bowl and let it sit. Eventually, the clay starts to harden and takes on the shape of the bowl. After I bisque fired the bowls, students then glazed their bowl.
