5th and 6th Grade Art
The current clay project in art was created to tie into the study in history of the traditional Gods and Goddesses of Ancient India. We talked about the powers and gifts the traditional deities possessed and how we could translate that knowledge into a contemporary figure. The students noted that the characteristics were similar to super heroes, so that was the starting point of the project. Each student sculpted a unique figure with different element portraying various "powers". The forms are mostly around 6 to 7" high and have wonderful details. The students have shown a strong aptitude for working in clay. This will be the final week for the sculpting of the figure and the clay base.
