When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.
All fired up - RHMS students learn new pottery technique
Rose Hill Middle School pottery students got hands-on experience practicing Raku, a traditional Japanese pottery technique, with a special guest from Seattle Pottery Supply. Two kilns were set up outside the art room where students gained an appreciation and understanding of the technique that is often used in professional pottery studios and is different from the firing done in the art room kiln. Finished raku pots made by the students will be on display around the school.
