jective or portray a person, place, or thing. We used a slab roller to cut out clay into 9 x 9 x ¾" (23 x 23 x 2 cm) pieces, but you could use sticks and rolling pins. Students placed their paper patterns over the clay and lightly traced their designs with a pencil to transfer them. The paper pattern was then removed and students carved away the background of the clay to create a relief. (You can find a demonstration of this process at the Web Link below.) Finally, the tiles were fired, glazed, and fired again. The result? An engaging collaboration between art and geometry.

AAS Beginnings AAS began when art teachers in Massachusetts identified a need to create opportunities for high- school students to interact with professional artists as a way to understand what it's like to be an artist working and living in the world today. It also provides exposure to contemporary art and practices in a way that students are not able to receive in a traditional classroom setting. Our tagline is "Limits: No Limits" because we believe that, given limited time and resources, when we work together, the possibilities are limitless. Artworks!, the New Bedford Free Public library, the New Bedford Whaling Museum, and the New Bedford Whaling National Histori- cal Park, along with the city's won- derful galleries, and many public art pieces and murals. With all of the interesting things to explore, it's hard not to be inspired! Facilitating Collaborations AAS is strongly committed to serv- ing adolescents and helping them understand the role of art in their individual lives and in the life of the community. The 144 students selected work with sixteen profes- sional artists to create large-scale installations in thirty-six hours using a limited number of materi- als. Students work in groups of eighteen with two artist mentors per studio group. Each group examines, discusses, and investigates works from local galleries and museums to inspire their collaborative work. The Art All-State Model Kristi Oliver Collaborative Community The notion of " collaborative cre- ative community" runs like a life- line through all aspects of AAS. It provides a shared, lived experience that connects participants, artists, educators, and community members regardless of the year they attended or their specific group project. Suc- cessful community building relies on successful community partner- ships . At its core, AAS is a partner- ship between the Massachusetts Art Education Association and the Col- lege of Visual and Performing Arts at UMass Dartmouth who find in AAS a way to achieve common goals.
