Indian Pottery with Anita Fields
The Heritage third-graders want to thank Anita Fields for coming and teaching them about Native American Pottery. The students spent three days with Anita. On day one, students learned how to make a pinch pot. The second day they sculpted an animal. Day three was spent applying an underglaze to their work before Anita took it back to Tulsa to fire.
