Welcome back to PARCC schedule.

We will be looking at Ceramics (slideshow) . and learning 3 techniques to make objects. Rubric  

1. Ceramic Sphere – Using the Pinch Pot method only, students will make a hollow sphere.
2. Coil Cup – Using the coil method only, students will generate an approximately 2 inch diameter and 3 Inch height cup that is smooth and has straight sides.
3. Hollow Cube – Using the slab method only, students will generate a hollow cube that has approximately 2” sides.
4. Metamorphosis- Using the previous methods, students will generate a design that combines an everyday object with an animal. The design can be as simple as a functional cup or pot that embraces the essence of an animal or a nonfunctional design that is ½ object and ½ animal.  The object must be at least 5” in any one direction and 3” in any other directions.
