I was invited by Tilly, the former art teacher at Bui O Public School, to participate in a Visual Arts Demo/workshop for the students of P1, P2 and P3. The students had the opportunity to try their hands at print making, graffiti, mosaics and ceramic activities. I was in charge of the ceramics.
After a brief introduction to ceramic clay, some basic techniques and processes students were instructed on how to decorate a pendent using under-glaze. I prepared the pendants for the students and bisqued them beforehand.
Then student were given an example on how to form clay using the pinch pot technique.
Students were allowed to play and manipulate the clay and were instructed on how to join pieces using scoring and slip.
After the pendents were fired they are returned to the students as a keepsake for the Visual Arts Day.
Special thanks to Lydia for assisting me with the photography and support.
I would like to thank my folks for coming all the way from Canada to sport me at this months market.
Next month on the 9th and December 14th i will be here again.
