Squeeze, roll, pinch, press... These are the steps for making a clay snowflake ornament. After firing, we glaze, fire again, and string! We wrapped them with hand-drawn snowflake paper and tucked a cut paper snowflake in our bags for good measure.

These charming prints were created by gluing a variety of foam and corrugated paper shapes to a mat board printing plate, then rolling with white printing ink and printing on colored paper. Finally, we folded a white paper into fourths and cut paper frames - we even made snowflakes from the remaining paper for no waste! The plates took two sessions to assemble, with one session for printing (3 per student) and one more session for framing and uploading to Artsonia.
Most of the shapes were cut by hand, although the snowflakes and snow men were precut.

Kinder artists made their own matching pairs after reading the book A Pair of Socks. They were amazed to learn the trick of folding the paper before cutting to get two identical shapes! They did an fantastic job with their cutting and gluing and making matching patterns.
