BYB2AC – Bring Your Buddy to Art Class!

My Ceramics II students each created a 4 piece set, consisting of 2 bowls and 2 cups for a special luncheon that we have affectionately referred to as BYB2AC!

Each student created a set of dishes that related in theme and or concept. The relationship between their two pieces needed to consist of more than just color, and it specifically did not have to “match”.  The students spent about 14 class periods building and glazing their pieces to prepare them for the lunch with their buddy.

And today was the day! What fun!! We made more than just ceramic place settings…we fostered a community of artists and art appreciators who shared a meal and spent time with one another. I can’t think of anything that I enjoy more!!
