I have now begun my summer semester as an art teacher at the Decorative Fine Arts. The class is part of the many summer classes offered at Glen Echo Park Partnership for the Arts. On Monday of each week we begin in the morning by planning out our color wheels, talking about rules and getting to know each other, and then having lunch and playing outside. In the afternoon session of our class creates clay tiles and small sculptures. Clay is a great medium to jump into art making with. The young children in my class ranging from age 6-12 are less self conscious about mushing and molding than they would be about say, painting.
