Home Moravian Church Exhibit

Diggs-Latham Students are excited to have Home Moravian Church as an official partner of the school. To celebrate this partnership, Diggs-Latham students from Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade are exhibiting 40 pieces of art in the Home Moravian Fellowship Hall for the next week. Mrs. Gordon, our art teacher, attended services at Home Moravian on Sunday, May 22 to greet members of the church while they viewed the art at the conclusion of services.

Check back on our blog later for photographs of this student exhibit.

Clay Bowls

Fifth graders are finishing a unit in which they learned the characteristics of clay and used the art medium, clay, along with molds, to create bowls. They used clay tools and other found objects and gadgets to create texture on their bowls. After a bique-firing of the bowls, students glazed their projects and added glass crystals as details. Pictured, students are showcasing their finished, glazed bowls.
