Afterschool Programs

Wednesdays we also have an afterschool program for kids grade 1-5. Today is an exploration of ceramics. The library has borrowed 'traveling cases' from the Kentucky Museum of Art. I used this for my homeschool program 2 weeks ago. It has some great books, a short video and examples of ceramic items. For a hands-on activity we will be making pinch pots. The video will show us how and then I'm using Crayola modeling clay. It will air dry and is very easy to use for kid's hands. If you haven't seen the 'traveling cases' I would highly reccommend them.
