Blosssomwood Fifth Grade Legacy Project

At Blossomwood, we decided this year to start leaving a Legacy Project from each fifth grade class.
This year, our "Seniors" are creating a tile wall.

We started by looking at images of Matisse's cut paper collages. The student were then assigned a organic shape to draw and paint on a tile.

We layered the glazes 3-4 times on the tiles to make sure the colors are vibrant and bright, and top coated the underglazes with a clear, shiny glaze.

The kids are amazed at how the kiln turns the glazes bright and shiny.



What a wonderful piece of art to leave as their "legacy."
