Fourth graders learned about the art of creating a coil pot through the story, "The Pot that Juan Built." This is a fantastic story that not only shares great information about how coil pots are made but tells a wonderful story about Juan Quezada. Juan Quezada is a Mexican artist who brought his family and community out of poverty. He figured out how to make fantastic pots and taught those around him to make and sell these fine works of art!
Learning Goals: I can...
- Tell about Juan Quezada
- Create a coil pot using clay building techniques
- Paint my coil pot in a unique way
