The first project students do for Introduction to Ceramics, is a tile project. Students take on additive and subtractive sculpture as they learn how to transform a 2d space into a 3d form yet still work on a flat surface. The tiles always turn out beautiful but I really want to push students to learn how to create original design. We will be taking that on next year.
Technology used in the lesson is done on Nearpod, A fantastic Web 2.0 tool that allows you to transform power points into an interactive question forum. You can imbed open ended, multiple choice or matching questions and much more. This is how brainstorming was done for this lesson.
Please visit the student work area to see more of the ceramic tiles!
