Today we began a new series of art classes at the Butler, called “los Animalitos”. We missed the first class due to our Europe trip, but Mrs. George was kind enough to let us start a week late. This class focuses on sculptures inspired by the Oaxaca style.
Mrs. George helped the girls catch up. They managed to get their sculptures made and even began plastering them.
When I came into the room after class, I saw their original sketches plus the 3-D sculptures. S8 modeled hers after Skippyjon Jones, one of her favorite book characters. O6 did a chihuahua, but hers is based on the beanie baby our violin teacher let her take home this week. Skippyjon looks very excited about being a subject. The chihuahua… looks a little dubious.
They made excellent progress on their models, however.
