Van Gogh Ceramic Landscape

Van+Gogh+CeramicVincent Van Gogh was known for his thickly painted landscapes, so you can replicate the look with clay and kiln and glazes.
1. Give each student about a baseball-size piece of clay, and have them form a smooth ball. Show them how to press the ball into a thick pancake, using a roller if possible.
2. Give each student a stick or stylus, and have them etch a drawing into the clay. It’s good to start with a horizon line, and then add a road, grass and sky.
3. Fire the clay plates, glaze paint, and fire again. Vibrant Van Gogh-ish colors are essential!
