I teach high school pottery. They don’t have clay and won’t have it. I said they can use play dough or paper mache (or whatever) if they want to or can. Not all of my students will have the dough option but I love that idea! I will send them a recipe on the next round. (BTW.. my classes are about 90% boys)
I am having them do a sculptural plan with sketches from front, back, sides and top and explanations, expected problems etc.
And I’m brainstorming about having them make plans for an over the top Rube Goldberg type toilet or sink.
But that takes me through 2 weeks! I love The Great Pottery Throw Down idea but what about the kids without internet?
