Clay Owls

Lower primary grade levels explored texture and created these amazing ceramic owls. As an introduction to clay students experimented, explored, and were exposed to new techniques. These owls were created using a ball of clay and a Crayola marker. The marker was used to create the texture and add details. For the first time in the art room, we used a marker without ever removing the cap!


Students painted their owls with liquid watercolor and sealed them with Mod Podge


Using the cap of a Crayola Marker students made semi-circles to look like feathers. The end of the marker was used to add eyes! This pair of owls are awaiting the addition of beaks!


1st grade added additional color using construction paper crayons!
