K-12 Student Work

Below you'll find selections of student work from classes I've taught ranging from kindergarten through grade 12.


 
I created this name tag 'environment' as a way of keeping track of the name tags I had kids make. I created the fishes / insects and they chose their image and added their name on the first day of class. The velcro made it all work so well and the kids started making other animals for the environment when they finished projects early.

Ceramics  Grades 2-3 | Community School of Music & Art | Palo Alto

This class learned basic ceramic techniques and vocabulary and worked on projects that included hand-building techniques (slab, coil, pinchpot). We began each project by looking closely and completing 'studies' of the animals students chose to create in clay. Students learned about the firing process and glazing techniques in addition to creating texture using a variety of hand tools.
