4th Grade Hunderwasser Clay Houses!

We really enjoyed Hunderwasser's architectural concepts, and the idea of building a small model of a house is appealing to just about everyone!  Imagine if you were an inch tall, what kind of sweet little abode would you want to live in?
Students made their roofs from a pinch pot, and then used a slab to create the body of the house, cutting windows and doors and adding texture to both before finally adding the glazes.  They were surprised at their resulting colors!

And the photos below are from our last 4th grade art project, a directed Abstraction with markers and oil pastels and watercolor.  The kids really enjoyed it!
