6th Grade Bas Relief Tiles

6th grade students recently completed tiles in bas-relief.  Students viewed historical examples of bas-relief tiles and discussed how the artists used overlapping and texture to create interest.

Next, students worked on sketches for a tile design that was based on the natural world around them and used overlapping and various textures.  Students created their tiles using ceramic techniques  of slab, score & slip, additive & subtractive sculpting, and use of tools to create texture.
