Sculpey Summer Fun – Archive Post

I was going through my summer art archive posts and stumbled upon one of my favorite summer art activities for children.


Sculpey Projects

This clay is not like your typical clay that dries out if you don’t use it all right away. It’s flexible and easy to form into lots of fun projects like beads, animals, and pots. It remains pliable until you bake it. Our family has created many things with Sculpey and I wanted to introduce you to or remind you about this product.

Here’s the link to my original post about Sculpey: Sculpey Projects – Great Summer Fun.

If you’re looking for a book to use along with your Sculpey, I just found a good one at our public library: Clay Lab for Kids by Cassie Stephens. This book has a section on using polymer clay and shares some fun and even practical projects you can create. I have added a link at the bottom of this post.

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 Sample Collage

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans include a unit on using polymer clay. The book I suggest as the resource for those projects is called Polymer Clay by Irene Dean.

However you decide to use Sculpey this summer, I know you’re going to enjoy some creative time with your children.

Music Appreciation Monday – Grieg

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.

We are going to listen to Edvard Grieg this week for our Music Appreciation Monday. Grieg is from Norway. Can you find Norway on a map?

Note: This is a rather long selection so if you want to shorten your listening time, stop at around 13 minutes where there is a natural break in the music. You won’t miss the break…it is very obvious! Plus I’m not sure who the image is that comes on the video at around 19 minutes.

Piano Concerto in A Minor Opus 16


This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 7 plans if you would like to listen to more Grieg.

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 – Substitute for Watercolor Plans

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 Watercolor Supplemental Plans


Many of you have emailed regarding the book suggested and scheduled in the Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 plans, Watercolor for the Artistically Undiscovered. I realize it is no longer in print and the used copies are not satisfactory because the pages may have been painted already. I have looked high and low to find a substitute for this book so that I could update the plans. I have been unsuccessful in finding that replacement resource.

Instead, I have gone ahead and created a supplement for the plans that gives you specific links to internet resources and lesson plans that you can use instead. This will be posted on the Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 product page as a free download. I will also list it on the Updates tab at the top of the blog.

Harmony Fine Arts Grade 7 Watercolor SupplementI am hoping this will make up for the loss of the scheduled book in the plans. I apologize for the inconvenience of having to click over to the supplement when you are working with your plans.

On the positive side, you will be saving money since you won’t need to purchase the book.
