Krank Kids Play with Clay

Krank Kids Play with Clay

The annual Krank School Holiday program’s art classes have kicked off at the Logan West Community Art Share Alliance, with clay tower making first on the agenda. 

Creativity and talent flourished at the first art class of the Krank holiday program on Monday, January 11, through impressive clay towers crafted by the students. 

President of the Art Share Alliance, Steven Watson, says that the program’s first class is always popular. 

“The classes are always good,” he said.

“We get booked out on day one.” 

“Yesterday, we gave them the idea to make towers, and they have the freedom to make what they want.” 

The styles of towers created ranged from belonging to mystical forests to Disney princess movies to medieval times. 

Check out a few of them below:

The Art Share Alliance Facebook page expressed their pride in the kids’ creations on January 11. 

“Great array of so many different designs,” the post wrote. 

Steven says there are many exciting activities lined up in the program, including making Zombies with mixed media and an oddity bowl through wheel turning. 

Tuesday, January 12’s class saw students make glass coasters through glass fusing. 

“They made a square coaster and designed what they wanted to put on it in line with the theme, which was yachts,” Steven said. 

On Wednesday, the task was to make clay cactuses in a pot, followed by Hebel carving a forest spirit on Thursday and clay hand building a friendly fox on Friday.

“My favourite type of job is Hebel carving,” Steven said. 

“It is aerated lightweight concrete which you carve into shapes.”

Krank kids in action

Steven says the Logan Arts Alliance has provided fun and educational art classes for kids in the community as part of Krank for the last 15 years. 

“It’s in line with what the art’s alliance does,” he said. 

“We are a community organisation, and we run low-cost classes for everyone, and that’s just part of it, doing classes for children.

“These classes also give kids a look into the art field, where they get to do things they haven’t done before.”
