Excerpt from Clay Work: A Handbook for Teachers

In many of our most progressive schools clay-work is receiving marked attention as a means of hand training and art expression. But the progress of such work has been somewhat retarded owing to a lack of available information on the subject.

The object of this book is: first, to help teachers in acquiring the technique of clay-working; second, to offer several types of clay-work from which selection may be made. Detailed description of the processes of working, with numerous illustrative photographs are given; also photographs of finished models which, with a few exceptions, have been modeled by pupils from ten to twelve years of age in the public schools.

The author is indebted to Charles A. Bennett, professor of manual arts, Bradley Polytechnic Institute, Peoria, Ill., for many valuable suggestions; also to Fred D. Crawshaw, principal of the Franklin School, Peoria, for encouragement in developing many of the types of clay-work illustrated.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Clay Work: A Handbook for Teachers Well-planed modeling boards, twelve by fourteen inch es, are very useful for flat work; however, school slates, or the ordinary roofing tiles may serve the same purpose. If the work is to be carried on in the schoolroom, the desks may be protected with pieces of oilcloth the size of a modeling board. The work may be built upon this, if desired. The same piece of cloth may be wrapped about the unfinished work, thus keeping it in good condition for the next lesso/n./ A few wooden tools made by anyone handy with a knife will be needed, but the most useful of all tools is that supplied by nature - the thumb. In the earlier stages of a model, the fingers and thumb will give the general form desired, and the tool will only be needed in refining the work later on.
