Fourth grade has been exploring the difference between functional art and non-functional art. These two types of art are some times referred to as craft and fine arts. Craft is often times seen as the lesser of the two arts, which is why we use the terms functional and non-functional. After having a conversation about these two types of art, we started working on our coil pots. All grade 4 classes have finished building their coil pots. I am just waiting for the coil pots to dry out, then I will bring them to the junior high to be fired in the kiln. Check out the photos below to see room 18 in action.
