Clay Animal Sculpture

Clay Animal Sculpture

The plasticity of clay is an excellent material to model physical features and explore how those features determine body shape and function. You can also create character traits and emotions by shaping the face. Students use their hands and common household utensils to create an animal from a lump of clay. As they create their own animals, they give them a personality and explore body form and function of other vertebrate animals within a species. Workshop can focus on either birds or fish.
