For the third grade clay project, we made pinch pot owls. Students did step by step creation of the body and head of the owl during one class. The next class, using pictures of real owls, they used objects to add the face, wings and textures onto their owl. After the owls were dry and fired in the kiln, we used tempera paints to add color to our owls. I showed students how to dry brush and antique using tempera paint to create depth in their textures and color.
