Visual Arts

Visual Arts

Colfax is fortunate to have its own kiln for firing clay projects. Every grade level creates clay sculptures with the assistance of their teachers and trained specialists in visual arts. Students explore and experiment with the texture, shape and forms of clay. After creating geometric shapes with clay, Kindergarten students have made pinch pots. To deepen their understanding of fossils, second graders may create their own fossils or sculpt dinosaurs. In the past, third graders have made family Totem Poles to connect to the Storytelling unit in English Language Arts, and fifth grade students have explored clay forms by making whimsical teapots.
