Ceramic Tiles

RJH art students always look forward to working with clay. A tradition at RJH is to make a ceramic tile. My students had some very creative ideas this year, and I even decided to make one of my own.

This was my favorite project because it was all up to me how I wanted to make my project look like. I had a lot of fun doing this project. If Mrs. B wanted to make this project better I would suggest that she had more colors of glaze.

This was my favorite project beacause it was a hands on project. Which you could put whatever you wanted on it. Some things i think Mr's. B could make it better is to turn the radio on while we work to let us focus instead of having to sit in the silence.

This project was my personal favorite because, I enjoy creating a chunck of clay into something toatally different. My suggestion for the next time that Mrs.Bernstien chooses to do this project is to do what we did last year, and let us make two tiles: one to keep and one to leave at the school. I say this because I believe that we should have something here at R.J.H; that when we go on to high school signafies what we were all like when we were here.

this was my least favorite because could not create the image that i saw in my head.the way i could make this better is practice

I liked this project because it was the funest and coolest project to do.Next yeaer Mrs.B should let us do two tiles so we can leave one there and bring one home :D

DaSt2 said...

This project was my favorite because it was the most fun to make. The only way I think that this project could be better is by having more colors of glaze and letting us sit where we want.

MaVa2 said...

This was my favorite project because it was messy.It was a lot of fun.If Mrs.B could make this project better i wold suggest that she let us make one by ourselves then let us do it in groups of 3 or 4.

BrBa2 said...

This was my favorite project because it was from a movie that the autobots can save the earth until the next movie comes later. If Mrs. B wants to know that this project is better, it needs more names like Bubblebee.

CaTa-2 said...

I really like this project because I like to make stuff out of clay and paint stuff.


To make this project better I think Mrs. b should have hot pink glaze!

EmRa2 said...

EmRa2...I like this pieace of artwok because it has style and is a sport and i like sports.My suggestion is Mrs. Bernstein should let us do two so we will have more practice.

LaMc4 said...

This project was my favorite because it was very hands on, and i could decorate my tile any way i wanted! To make this project better next year is to make two tiles like we did last year, and keep one here and take the other one home. Even though we don't have any more space on the wall, we could get something else to hang them up as a memory that signifies us being here!

1)The clay project was my favorite project because it took alot of work and was fun.
2)I think that next time you should let them make a design or sculpture of something or someone.

ZaBe4 said...

1)This project was my favorit because i like to make threeD art peices. The medium was also the reson that i picked this project, clay is more fun to work with.
2)I think that Mrs. B shweould think about leting students make statcues out of clay. It doesnt have to change the entire project just a little somthing that jumps out at you.

ChGr4 said...

This was my favorite class activity because we had the opportunity to create something that we wanted to out of clay. If I could suggest something that Mrs.B could improve on, it would be for us to be allowed to talk so we could share ideas and brainstorm.

SaMe4 said...

1.This was my least favorite. i was really confused on what to do and i couldn't make what i thought in my head as well as i hoped.
2.this could have been better by having practice,maybe we could have done more for practice to get better

AsCr4 said...

I didn't like this activity because i didn't like to get my hands all dirty.I think Mrs.B should of gave us more time to pick out what we were going to make.I would make my art work better if i could of had more time to think about what i wanted to make.

LaPe6 said...

This was my least favorite because I couldn't get what I had in my head on tile. Mrs. Bernstein could get more tools to make it easier to make, but I think all anyone needs is practice.

BrOd-6 said...

This project was my favorite because you could make the tile however I wished to.I think Mrs.B could make the project better by having a better selection of colors of glazes.

JoPe 6 said...

This project was my favorite because you could make your own design,whatever you wanted and it was fun to make.Mrs.Bernstein could make this better by letting us make tower designs.

AuGu6 said...

This project was my favorite because we got to make any design that we wanted to and then we could paint them.

My suggestions for Mrs.B are to let us make several clay artwork such as: pots, drinking cups, and plates.

McKr6 said...

I think this was a fun and creative activity to do. I always like a challenge! I would recomend Mrs. B change the paper that the clay sits on more often.

KyWi7 said...

This project is my favorete because it is more hands on the all the otheres.my whole class had fun during this project.the whay Mrs.b could make this better is let us do a biger tile and more glaze avalable.

MiCo7 said...

This was my least favorite project because i did not try.
I think i could have done better if i thought about my design.

AuPo7 said...

This was my favorite project because.It was my way. not clean and tity.It is also memorising 6TH grade. My suggestion to Mrs.B if she was to add more.I think she should put more tools.For lines and shapes. Like cookie cutters.

BrWe 7 said...

1. This is my favorite because it was fun making the glay flat,and smooshing it.
2.I think Mrs.B could make it better by have more colors then four colors to make it look better.

KiMo-7 said...

This is my favorite project because I like to make my own designs. My suggestion to Mrs.B would be to let us have alittle bit more time and a some music to listen to.

MiSc7 said...

1. This was my favorite project because I had fun making a tile with a turtle on it with a black background on the tile too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!2.I think that Mrs.B could make this project better by getting more glaze for the kids next year. Also I think she should let them make the tiles into different shapes besides a square.

CaYo7 said...

This project was my favorite because I could cut the clay. It was realy fun making the tiles.

Mrs B could make it better by putting more glaze out. Other then that the project turnd out realy good.

JuBa7 said...

This was my lest favorite beacuse i had to rush.Mrs.B could make it better by doing 3D tiles

TyDo7 said...

The Ceramic Tile project was my favorite, because its very easy and it's really fun. What made it really fun was the clay,because it was easy to forme in to shaps. If the class in the future could have more colors to make it pop at and a biger tiles so thay can have more thangs pop at.

HaBr8 said...

This was my favorite art project because it was the most fun to make. For Mrs. Bernstein to make this better would probably have more colors of glaze.

JuSe8 said...

This was my favorite project because it was the funnest to do.
To make it better in the future I would tell mrs.B to let us have more time.

DeJa8 said...

This was my favorite project because you get to play with clay,and you get to make what you want. To make it better Mrs.B you could let us where gloves.

TySa8 said...

This project was my favorite because I got to play with the clay . A project could be improved by adding more color, or, more clay to the project.

JeJe8 said...

This was my least favorate because I wasted some of my time on figuring out witch design I wanted to do and the design was not very good. Mrs. Bernstien should give us a little more practice early in the year. I think my mind just wasnt opened fully.

SoGa8 said...

This was my favorate project beacause we got to do whatever we wanted on color and design.One thing I didn't like was that wecould not ask if our tile was done.

ChGo8 said...

This project is my favorite
because l get to designs the tiles that l want.

JoWo8 said...

The ceramic tiles are my favorite prodject,because I really enjoyed making them. Also because mine turned out so well and I love to work with clay.Mine also did not take very long to make.But I would like it better if it did not take so long to cook.

BrBr said...

I did not like how my tile looked.

MiMe8 said...

This is my least favorate because i messed up and it turned out dumb. I could have focused on my work then talking

RaLa8 said...

This projectwas my least favorite because you could not put more then one together.Mrs.B could make this project by putting us in partners.

MaLo-8 said...

My least favorite project is ceramic tiles because of two reasons,one reason is because it took a long time to think of something,two because a piece broke out of my tile.I think it would be better if I would think of something easier.

Co Ho prd.2 said...

I thought this was my favorite because I never done it before and I thought it was really cool. It would be a cooler project if we could make it larger.

AlRu2 said...

This is my favorite because it is so neat and pretty and it was a hands on project which made it even more fun. To make this project better in the future I think more glaze or more colors to choose from would be better.

JuCa2 said...

I liked this project best because we got to decorate it how we wanted.I would of liked it better if we also did the pots like last year.

PrGa2 said...

It was my favorite because it was reallly fun and an easy 100.We kinda got dirty but it was alot of fun to use the clay snd the glaze. You could use a more variety choice of colors to make it better I guess but overall it was awesome.

McMo2 said...

this was my favorite project because we got to create anything we wanted to and be as creative as possible and we got to get opur hands dirty also we got to use our hands thruogh olmost the whole entire project. Mrs.B could make this project better by adding a bigger varity of colors including some neon colors.

BrGa2 said...

This project is my favorite because it is fun and you get to keep it longer instead of just on paper.Also will take a longer time so we would have a more longer,fun time.Mr's B could make it better by alowing us to make 3D things like house's,cubes,and different things like that.

ElMo2 said...

This project was my favorite because you got to chooose any dasighn you wanted.If Mrs.B could make this better it would be to have more options of color to choose from.

EmRa2 said...

This is my least favorite artwork because you cannot really see what the artist point was making.And i think Mrs.B should have more colors ande tools so we can make our artwork more succseful.

aujo4 said...

This was my favorite project because we made tiles that we could keep. We got to take the tiles home and keep them. To make this project better we could have got designs off of the internet.

BaGu6 said...

The tile project is my favorite because we werent just doing one step.It took a while to finish and we could always look forward to coming to class the next day to work on it.Some things i think Mrs.B should change for the sixth grade classes is let us work a little bit faster like not give us a bunch of time to work on one part of that project so we can take them home faster.

KyWi7 said...

this project is my favorite because there was no limit to what i madeand i could decide what i whanted on my tile.the way Mrs.B could make this beter is to let us talk during the prses of designing the tile

cara8 said...

The best project is when we made ceramic tiles. I think Mrs.B is a great teacher and dose not need to change any thing.

SeSa2 said...

this was my favorite project because working with clay gives you a chance to express yourself or ur feelings in art. the on thing i would change about this would be that she needs more glaze colors
