Clay Buddies

The Glen Cove High School ceramics program, under the direction of teacher Vicki Gordon and Landing Elementary School art teacher Jean Bennardo, planned for students in Joanne Flower and Nicole Mazza’s third-grade classes to visit the high school on April 18.

Working in small groups, high school students demonstrated techniques to create clay creatures using sketches created by the third-grade students. The older students taught the youngsters about the tools needed to get the job done correctly and lent a helping hand when needed.

In addition to learning about the history and properties of clay, students young and old realized the value of our Glen Cove School District community, as everyone collaborated and enjoyed creating art and memories.
