Grade 2: Clay Leaves

If we could have stayed outside and played in the leaves, it would not have felt like a lost day. To start class off for 2nd grade, we went outside with the mission of finding the largest leaf that we could, plus two others. 
The sun felt so good and the colors on the school property right now are out of a book. 
After we searched for leaves and brought them back into the art room, we took clay imprints of our autumn colored treasures.
What a perfectly colored shirt 


  1. what type of clay do you use? Those are beautiful!

    1. Hi there,
      I use a regular, white earthenware clay easily purchased via the art catalogs. If you need help picking a clay, let me know!
      Once the clay was bone dry, it was fired in the kiln and then glazed and re-fired.
