We quickly went through our two sculpting books and then just let the kids create. E was especially interested in the Egyptian sculpture pictured in The Story of Sculpture.
Unfortunately, I forgot my camera this week. So there are not very many pictures and the pictures I took with my phone did not come out all that great.
|B went to her room and got a bowl she had made|
at school to help her figure out what to make.
|Boogs kept making and squishing his creations.|
He finished working on a bowl.
|E wanted his creations to look just like the |
pictures in the book.
|Boogs used his tools to carve images on the side|
of his bowl.
|C made a dolphin.|
|B also made a clay version of her dog.|
|Thumbs up! It's a hollow thumb that fits on your hand.|
|E's Nefertiti sculpture.|
|I made a coil pot out of clay. I work much better|
with food. So, the next day, I madeBoogs a lunch
based on sculpture with a breadbowl, carved carrots,
and sculpted cereal bar hearts.
The kids are excited about painting their clay next week.
