Where does the money from Art & Home Tour ticket sales go? To local public school art teachers like Karin Chmelo of East Clayton Elementary School, for K-5 projects--"Clay, What?!"

These clay projects are a staple in the Art Room. The students know and look forward to “Clay Day!” every year and each year they ask what the NEXT year’s project is. Their enthusiasm and love for an art form that urges them to mold and manipulate is so much fun for elementary students. The Kindergarteners recently finished up their stars to represent their progress over the year. They molded the clay, used a cookie cutter and designed their own star using a toothpick. The 1st graders dove into clay as part of their Prehistoric unit where we talked about fossils and their importance to uncovering history. The 2nd graders learned about American Artist, Laurel Burch and created colorful cats out of clay. We focused on technique as far as cutting out the clay and decorating it using various clay tools. The 3rd graders LOVED their clay cupcakes inspired by American Artist, Wayne Thiebaud. This was their first opportunity to create art that was not only beautiful but functional as well. They did a great job making these delicious treats! Our 4th graders learned about the sea turtle activity along the NC Coast. We discussed ways to protect these creatures and then created our own out of clay. We had to really master the technique of “Score, Slip and Smush,” to attach pieces of clay since these turtles had multiple parts to create and assemble. Lastly, the 5th graders used all of their prior knowledge of clay to make a Face Jug inspired by those created by North Carolina Artists. We began with a slab that was rolled to create a cylinder. We reviewed “Score, Slip and Smush,” from the year before to attach a base and a handle if they wished. The face is where the creativity lived as some made them truly “ugly” like the ones created by artists long ago in order to keep away the evil spirits and others used their own imagination to create unique works of art. The students experimented with texture and manipulated the clay with different techniques and tools in order to make each one their own.

The students did a great job and are very proud of their work at each grade level! Thank you to the Clayton Visual Arts for the funds to purchase these supplies!
