Clay art for kids – 6 sessions of clay art


Kids enjoy working with clay. In these 6 sessions we will be working on pencil drawings/sketches of everyday objects and then we will be making clay objects. Once it is dry we will color them. Kids will get to handle different types of clay as air-dry clay, modeling clay and baked clay. They will be carrying their clay projects to home towards the end.

More info on Parkinsonism (Source Wikipedia):

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system.Early in the course of the disease, the most obvious symptoms are movement-related; these include shaking, rigidity, slowness of movement and difficulty with walking and gait. Later, thinking and behavioral problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease, whereas depression is the most common psychiatric symptom. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep and emotional problems. Parkinson’s disease is more common in older people, with most cases occurring after the age of 50. The disease is named after the English doctor James Parkinson, who published the first detailed description in An Essay on the Shaking Palsy in 1817.

Crackerville

Being an artist, I find shapes almost everywhere! My daughter made graham crackers which were looked like buildings with small windows on it. I thought for a minute and then I picked up some more crackers and different kinds of biscuits from the cupboard, took some bread crumbs and some freshly baked brownie pieces. And in a few minutes I saw a small and delicious cracker town which I named Crackerville. Crackerville
