Students were required to do a series of thumbnail preparatory sketches for their sculptures before mixing their paperclay and constructing their ideas. Emphasis was placed on the elements and principles of occupied and unoccupied space and texture in their constructions. Finalized sculptures were fired unglazed to further emphasize the spatial and textural elements.

Blend toilet paper scraps and enough warm water to make a "TP smoothie" and mix with an equal amount by approximate weight of sloppy clay. Pug this mixture by hand until relatively homogeneous. The cellulose fibers of the paper serve to strengthen the mixture and retard shrinkage when dry and burn out easily when fired.
Paperclay mixture can be poured onto a cafeteria tray or plaster bat for drying, then cut and cemented with some reserved sloppy paperclay, wet on dry, to create slab constructions, or kept at a wedge-able stage and coiled or used in other handbuilding techniques. Damp paperclay may be stored in plastic sealable bags and refrigerated to prevent decomposition of paper fibers.
Students were to create a visual response to the plight of homeless populations in our communities.
The response could include visual references to the idea of shells as "shell-ters" from a story told them of a homeless person I had met who was found living in an unused bandshell in East River Park in New York City and a class discussion of their own personal encounters with homeless people in our and other communities. Working with Paperclay and Other Additives - This highly technical account includes discussions and illustrations of the work of ceramic artists who work with this type of clay.
There are no projects as such, but the description of materials and methods is valuable for potters working with this medium. As these were projects done by AP Studio 3D Design students, the rubric established by the College Board for portfolio evaluation was used in an individual-to-teacher self-critique on a scale of , 1 being poor to 6-excellent, with respect to the overall effect of the piece and its use of space and texture.
Circle the number in pencil that best shows how well you feel that you completed that criterion for the assignment.
