Since, we do not have a kiln (oven that cooks the clay) at our school, we have not had the pleasure of working with real ceramic clay until this spring. ArtReach, a program with Lill Street, came to show us how to make art with clay. They fired the clay in their kiln at their very large studio on the north-side Ravenswood neighborhood.

3rd and 4th graders were rewarded with this lesson because of their excellent behavior. First they designed their fish/sea creature on paper. Next they learned how to work with the clay, and finally they made their clay sea creature!
