Overview

    Ceramic painting

    A fantastic hands-on activity for kids, and it’s wonderful that their creations will become functional, usable, and food-safe items. Here’s a step-by-step guide for teaching kids how to decorate and paint ceramic pieces using different techniques:

    Step-by-Step Guide:

    Introduction and Inspiration:
    Show the kids examples of painted ceramics and different techniques to inspire their creativity.
    Cleaning and Preparing Ceramic Pieces:
    Ensure the ceramic pieces are clean and free of dust or debris before starting.
    Base Coating:
    Begin by applying a base coat to the ceramic pieces using ceramic paint. Discuss color choices and how they can affect the final outcome.
    Technique Demonstrations:
    Demonstrate various painting techniques, such as brushstrokes, stippling, sponging, and detailing.
    Layering and Detailing:
    Discuss the concept of layering colors and adding details to create depth and interest in their designs.
    Texture Techniques:
    Introduce the use of sponges or cotton swabs for creating textures on the ceramic surface.
    Drying Break:
    Allow time for the painted pieces to dry completely before proceeding to the next step.
    Glazing and Firing:
    Explain the process of glazing and firing, and let the kids know that their pieces will be left in the studio for this process.
    Pick-Up Information:
    Provide details about when the painted pieces will be ready for pick-up after glazing and firing, typically within 10 days.
    Celebration and Display:
    Once the ceramic pieces are ready for pick-up, celebrate the kids’ achievements and display their functional artworks.
