ART @ ICS
What’s Happening in ART Class!
Teacher: Ms. Stam
It's almost the end of the school year! Congratulations to our graduating eighth grade class. The Independent projects are on display in the school foyer. The Student Art Show is scheduled for June 6th from 1:00-3:00pm.
If you are interested in earning volunteer hours for next year, please consider volunteering for the end of the year art show. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up with Signup Genius on our ICS website events page. A station will be set up for payment of professionally framed student artwork. Volunteers will be needed to help out during the event. Siblings can make their own works of art at the Creation Station that will be set up in the Multi-purpose room. Please join us at our ICS Open House!
Elementary and Middle School students are finishing up their various end of the year projects. This year’s artwork includes a lot of drawing, painting, ceramics, fiber art and sculptures.

ART is Exploration
Students are encouraged to explore all mediums in the classroom.
This is the final week of Clay Club. Participating students learned how to wedge clay and made three ceramic objects of their choice (pinch pots, bowls, pendants, ornaments or carved tiles). Each student received 10lbs of clay. A pottery wheel demonstration was given by the instructor. Students had the opportunity to try the pottery wheel. Throwing pottery requires lots of practice and Clay club students enjoyed throwing and experimenting with different forms on the wheel.
Please note: Ceramic works of art require proper clay wedging to remove air bubbles. Air bubbles can cause an explosion inside the kiln during firing resulting in damage to the work of art itself and possible damage to other student artwork. The instructor is not responsible for breakage through improper handling, wedging or ceramic glaze defects after firing. Ceramic artwork shrinks by 10% after firing.
