LAKE WALES – Hillcrest Elementary potters have been pinching, scoring, cutting and rolling as they work to create “pinch pots” with art teacher Brannan Lawson.
Students watched YouTube instructional videos and some how-to videos created by their teacher. The videos helped them learn cutting, rolling and scoring techniques, and how to create pinch pots.
“I wanted to have a ceramic class so our students could use the kiln our school provided for us,” said Lawson.
