Visual Arts 10: Ceramics

In Visual Arts 10, we create a simple coil-built vessel. Then we cover it with slip and carve a pattern and a picture into it.

Visual Arts 10: Source materials for art teachers

Publish this Item?:

Creating classroom materials can be tough, particularly when you are teaching a lesson for the first time. 

Please feel free to use these I have created in your own classrooms. If you modify these handouts to make improvements, I would love to know about it. After all, I want to make my resources even better.

Many of the handouts have been created using Scribus, an open-source page-layout package. It is awesome, and my wife uses it, too. Where possible, I have included the original package of scribus files as well, so you can make modifications.
