Clay projects

All classes are currently painting their clay projects!

When doing, they will be graded and then wrapped up to send home.  Some will be chosen to be in the Spring Art Show, and will therefore be sent home after the art show in May.  Please note that clay projects are not glazed, but rather painted and varnished.  They are not appropriate for holding food or liquid.  Wrapped food items are fine, though!
