Animal Sculptures – Gr 2 (Room 8)

Standard
Armadillo Alley

Here are some more awesome sculptures, by some of Conant’s amazing grade 2 artists!  During this unit, not only did the second graders practice their clay hand-building techniques, but they also learned a bit about another cultures art.

The Cute Cat













Oaxacan wood carvings, from the Mexican state of Oaxaca, inspired the paint application.  They used bright color, and created patterns and designs on their animals.  The goal was not a realistic animal, but instead, a stylized one. 

The Grassy Island

 





After their pieces were finished, students created a background for display.  While working on the background second grade artists practiced blending the colored pencils, to create new colors.  Some of these amazing sculptures have already made their way home, but check out the display cabinet in the front lobby before the end of the school year to get a real life peek of these sweet sculptures
