Clay Forest Dwellings, Part I

Our current art class at the Butler is called “Clay Forest Dwellings”. The kids are supposed to come up with a “home” for a forest animal and then sculpt it out of clay.

O6 decided to make a ladybug tower. Here is her sketch:

and here is what she came up with today:

S7’s sketch is slightly more elaborate. She is making a home for a squirrel out of a hollow fallen log.

I love the little acorn at the bottom right. Anyway, here is her project:

It is totally hollow, but there’s a paper towel shoved inside to help it keep shape until the clay dries.
