MEsSy HaNds Make Beautiful Creatures

Free-standing sculpture, sculpture that is surrounded on all sides, except the base, by space. It is also known as sculpture "in the round", and is meant to be viewed from any angle.

Little Creatures:
My daughter's class was studying animals a few weeks ago, and her teacher was gracious enough to let me bring in some clay. Most of the second graders decided to make their favorite animal, and their offspring as well. If that was too difficult, then instead, they rolled out snakes-there were 4 snakes. The tables, chairs, hands, shirts, sinks, and anything that got in the way, were covered in mud/clay. As always, it was a lot of fun!

Next we need to paint them!
