SAINT LOUIS, MO – Art Recess is an ongoing art program in Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis, that provides different series programs. One of the series is Art Recess: Making Clay, where participants can make clays from the ingredients in the kitchen.

Pulitzer Arts Foundation offers the tutorial through their website and it is inspired by Hanna Wilke. She embraced unusual materials to create lively sculptures and this was the starting Art Recess: Making Clay.

You can create your clay with bakeable clay for sculpting, creativity, and safe play. If you wish to create one, here is the brief tutorial you may follow.

1. Prepare the ingredients to create the clay.

2. Put in 2 to 2,5 cups of flour.

3. Add a pinch of salt.

4. Pour the water for about ¾ cups.

5. Afterward, add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.

6. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil as well.

7. Stir the water, lemon juice, oil, and food coloring.

8. You may add food coloring to have colorful clay.

For the equipment, you can use forks, chopsticks, paintbrushes, paper towels, rolling pins, and other equipment you can find in your kitchen.

If you are looking for inspiration to create your clay, you may visit these links from art educators by Anna Chapman, Gladys Puente Calampa, and Emily Prescott.
