Monday-We will begin our unit on Byzantine art. We will then start our unit on clay! I will go over key ceramic terms and demo how to use clay to make form. Students will be making animals but they must first create a sketch. Their sketches should draw their chosen animal from the front, back, and side.

Tuesday-We will continue to look at Byzantine art, focusing on the famous work of architecture, the Hagia Sophia. After each students sketch is approved they will begin with clay. Each student will start with a ball of clay that they will form into the body and then legs, head, etc.

Wednesday- We will finish our study of Byzantine art by looking at Icon paintings and discussing their characteristics. Students will then continue their clay animals.

Thursday- . I will begin class with an introduction to Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Students will then continue their clay animals by adding texture and hollowing out their form.

Friday- We will have a Pep Rally today. Today we will focus on the key characteristics of Gothic architecture. Students will then complete their clay creatures by adding final details as well as texture.

Monday-I will demonstrate how to use ribbons to build a vessel. I will then introduce the next project, luminaries. Students will sketch and plan the shape of the vessel as well as the cutouts they plan to use for their luminary. Once their sketch is approved, they may begin building their form

Tuesday-Students will continue to work on their luminary by building the form with either slabs or ribbons. Students will also glaze their slab boxes as they come out of the bisque kiln.

Wednesday- Students will then begin to create a design in their luminaries using cutouts.

Thursday-Students will continue to work on their luminaries.

Friday- We will have a group, mini critique of slab containers and then students will write a critique of their slab container before turning it in for assessment. Students will complete their luminaries and put them in the kiln room to begin the drying out process. Students may also begin cold decorating or glazing their bas relief tiles.
