* Upper School ceramics teacher Marlina Koonce and Lower School art teacher Tracey Petrov presented their Create-A-Creature collaborative lesson plan this past weekend at the Art Education Association of Indiana Conference at Vincennes University. Marlina and Tracey shared their lesson plan that inspires first grade students to create drawings of creatures that are then sculpted from clay by the US ceramics students. Conference workshop participants experienced a mini version of the lesson, enjoying the challenge of using air-dry clay to try to figure out how they would approach making creature sculptures from each other's drawings. The current round of creatures created by first grade and US ceramics students will be on display after Thanksgiving break in the ceramics display case located next to the Studio Theater FA065.
