If you could write a fantasy novel, who would your hero be? If you could create a model of your character out of clay and found objects, what would she look like? These marvelous sculptures are the work of a 5th grade class, who did that very thing.
They wrote a fantasy story from first person perspective, narrated by their main character. Then, over the course of one week of art classes, they sketched and created a 3-d model of their character using clay and mixed media. They also had the opportunity to construct a stand or platform and tools or accessories for their character using scrap wood and found objects.
