|Ten points to those who can guess who this work in progress is!|
We also discussed the lack of learning tools and toys that children have that are geared toward art and art history. After viewing this new commercial from Barbie and talking about how important it is for children to be allowed to also dream about becoming artists we began working on our sculptures. The process was simple enough, start with some straws and wire for the basic "bone" structure, use newspaper and tape to create the form or "muscles" and most if not all of one of my classes decided to bring clay for the facial features so they would look more realistic.
I am so proud of what they have done!
