5th grade Middle Eastern Tiles

5th grade artists learned about the tiles that were often used in Middle Eastern architecture. They learned that most of them are geometric or floral in design and are also symmetrical. They created their own tiles by rolling out a clay slab and then carving into them, and adding clay designs using the slip, score, seal method.
