Clay Expression Slabs
Students will discuss how different emotions are shown with different facial features and expressions. Students will then use a variety of materials to create marks on their clay slab masks to express an emotion of their choosing. Student clay slab masks will be fired and painted to enhance the emotion shown.
The two parts that involve the creation of the mask and the painting of the slab mask will not happen consecutively, because it takes time for the clay to dry and to be fired in preparation for the finishing process. The time between completing the initial construction of the clay project and the glazing and/or painting of the clay may be five or more days apart, depending on when art classes meet. Clay may take four or more days to dry, depending on thickness.
