This was my first time working with clay for multiple days in class, well only two, but it was still a really big deal for me! I have so many students and not as much space so organizing everything was really hard for me but worth it!
I found this artist named James DeRosso who creates these AMAZING clay monsters! Here is a video that is great to introduce him to your class here. The process was really easy, using slabs to create the cylinder and then attaching pieces using score & slip.

|More student work!|
|Table set up!|
|Storing over 200 pieces of clay takes WORK.|
|Lots of WORK, and no I did not stand on a chair to|
get those bags up there. SAFETY FIRST!
What is the clay project that you enjoy teaching most? Any suggestions on storage solutions?
