Today we gathered around clay that was formed into rectangular prisms. The clay didn't stay in that form for long! Soon nests, eggs and birds appeared. And then, the mama birds were desperate to feed their babies. Many small worms were made, but then a large snake showed up to the party. We pulled out mesh to show how the imprint could make snake skin. Soon we had many scaly snakes and found other creative uses for the mesh.
In small groups we put details on our found object sculptures and continued to explore printing. We also made print plates by creating designs on wooden boards with foam stickers. We'll be learning the printmaking process tomorrow.
