Painting in Clay
Idea submitted by Lorraine Bastone

Lorraine writes: "This is an idea which I was introduced to in college.  This is a great activity for the last term.  Especially for upper juniors.
 
1.    Each child has a clay canvas roughly the size of an A4 piece of paper and about 1cm thick.
2.    The child then chooses a copy of a painting to reproduce in the clay.  You can have a collection of different artists as by this time they should have looked in detail at most of them or just focus on one artist. 
3.    The children then recreate the painting in the clay first concentrating on the outline of the piece and then looking deeper at the painting and adding a 3D element to the clay.  Noting which aspects of the painting the artist has tried to emphasise in their use of tone/shade and colours. 
4.    When the child has finished the clay is left to dry or is fired which ever is appropriate.
5.    The next step is painting and this allows the child to mix colours trying to get as close to the artists as possible.
6.    When dry they can be glazed.  I have used gloss varnish before when there are no children around.

7.    These masterpieces can be finished by framing or just displaying for the parents to see them at the various times in the summer term when they are in the school."
