Merry Christmas Everyone!

So it's been a busy 2 weeks but today is the last day of school.

Here are the Pastel Resist Madonnas Grade 3 made.

Grade 2 did the Family Snowman portraits on canvas.  I can't show you those because of all the last names.  Grade 5 did their own version in clay.  I can show you a couple as the names are harder to read.
Last week the kiln began having thermostat problems....big headache!, but we were able to rescue our projects.  Luckily all the bisque fires had been done. 
Grade 6 ended up painting their Poinsettias with acrylic instead of glazing and I think they turned out great!
Grade 1 made their Angel plates.
I don't have a picture of the Nativity Plates by Kindergarten but they turned out great.  We modified the design a bit, just going with the Baby Jesus in his cradle with lots of stars.  It was easier for them to construct and very successful.
Grade 3 made wooden Christmas houses that are based on a house idea I presented at the last ECEC session.
I'll post the full tutorial for you in January.  Again a big success!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and all the best in the New Year!
I am off across the pond and my next post to you will be from London.  I hope to share some of my photos with you during the holidays.

Take care everyone.
