Kids help with Empty Bowl project

Before finding it, they had a chance to visit the smaller gallery where they found fun art such as giant horses and a lawnmower chair. Once inside the main gallery they were fascinated with the different pieces of artwork and the various types of media used. The students discussed their favorite pieces and were happy to find one of their school mate’s artwork in the show. Amelia Talkington had a painting which happened to be one of their favorite ones. After leaving the main gallery, the children took time to observe a ceramics class. The students and their teacher were delighted to have visitors. The children got to see people throwing on a wheel, sculpting a face and a fish platter and many other things. They asked loads of questions and were even given some clay to see what they could do at home.
