Rainey A & B - A Shared Clay Experience
Today, in what will be the first of many, we shared an exploration! Given that both pods have been using clay individually, we thought it was high time we shared in the experience together. Accompanied by our virtual friends, Audrey, Sylvie and Ms. Elyse, Rainey A and B explored wet clay together.
Given that both pods have spent time working on movement (Rainey A through obstacle courses and Rainey B through dancing and yoga), we thought it would be interesting to focus our clay exploration on building a figure, human or otherwise. As we soon found out, it’s easier said than done!
I can’t imagine how to make a human. I’m just trying to make a path for the human- Jack
I just made a leg and a foot, it's hard to attach!- CC
Nevertheless we persisted exploring scoring, slipping, rolling and coiling to try and make our figures. The clay figures came in all shapes and sizes encompassing all kinds of life forms including humans, monsters and snowmen!

Look at the leg- Violet
After we return from Winter Break, the Rainey Rooms will continue to share an exploration about once a month. We are hopeful that through our shared explorations we will create all kinds of beautiful and nuanced work, strengthening not only our own individual learning concepts, but building on our school friendships as well!
