Inspired by A Soulful Life, we got out the clay...
rolled it flat...
and cut out fish shapes with a knife.
It reminded me of Michelangelo defining sculpture as the art of "taking away."
They experimented with adding texture with objects they found around the house.
The fish began to come to life before our eyes.
A few days later, they were fully dry and ready to paint. I put some blue,some green and some white paint on a plate and showed them how to mix the paints to get their desired colors.
They added glitter as they painted.
Katie introduced black, yellow and red to the color pallet.
