1st and 2nd Grade Pinch Pots

If you walk into the art room at East Elementary School you will find every spare inch filled with trays and trays of beautiful pinch pots created by the 1st and 2nd graders. As part of this lesson we learned that pottery is one of the very oldest art forms. We played with the clay and learned to make different forms in different sizes. Then we each created a pinch pot and decorated our pot to provide interesting visual and tactile texture. Next time we come to art we will paint our pottery.

Vocabulary Words: Shape, Form, Texture, Pinch Pot, Small, Medium, Large
