Boyles Family Clay Tile Project

This project aims to get students to think differently about how artist make work from unusual or untraditional materials and that anything can be a material or subject to create art. The PowerPoint explores a series of artists who use unusual materials, processes/ subjects in their work, these include the Boyles family, Duchamp, Mark Bradford and Michael Landy. The worksheet is used to record interesting compositions and textures in the classroom in a Boyles family style. Students create their own view finder and create what they see using a range of materials and tools. Once completed the final design is carved and sculpted into clay tile which is then fired and glazed.
